FOREWORD 



It will take a discerning eye to read this little book with the un- 
derstanding that it deserves. At first glance, it may appear to be 
little more than a laconic recital of facts and figures and the bare 
bones of reports. However, it is more than a journal for ready ref- 
erence. Besides being a true and concise record of another success- 
ful year in the life of the Auxiliary, it breathes the spirit of simple 
faith on the part of the devoted women of this Diocese who, despite 
the fears and anxieties of war conditions that have crept into their 
homes, have remained constant to their sacred purpose to be loyal 
to Christ. Herein the sympathetic reader who knows that most of 
the noblest deeds of life are done in secret, will discover what won- 
drous things God continues to accomplish through those who are 
willing to pray and study and give and serve. Whether they be 
young or old, these are His children, and "of such is the Kingdom 
of Heaven." 

Edwin A. Penick 
Bishop of North Carolina

Duties Suggested for Parish Missionary Correspondents 

1. Branch missionary correspondents should let no meeting pass 
without giving (or having someone give) some news item about some 
missionary, preferably those from our Diocese. 

2. Encourage members to subscribe to Forth and read it. The 
branch could subscribe to this paper and pass it among members. 
It is from this paper and the North Carolina Churchman that you 
can get many news items of interest. 

3. Write to missionaries without expecting an answer in return. 

4. See that prayers are said for these missionaries at church 
services and auxiliary meetings. Encourage your members to pray 
for them in their private devotions. 

5. Give the rector of your church news items about missionaries 
and ask him to announce them at church services. 

6. Write to Church Missions House, 281 Fourth Avenue, New 
York City, and ask for material concerning openings for work in the 
mission field; the training necessary to fill such jobs, and scholarships 
available in case an applicant cannot finance this training. Use this 
material for a program or a full report at an auxiliary meeting. Pass 
it on to your young people for them to use in Church School or Young 
People's Service League.

PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

Bishop Penick, reverend clergy, visitors and members of the 
Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese of North Carolina. This year in 
which I have served as your President has seen such great changes 
in the life of our people that it seems much longer than twelve 
months since we met together in Tarboro. At that time our country 
had been at war for almost six months but we had not begun to 
suffer the derangement of our personal lives which has come in- 
creasingly upon us. Today as we meet together in Raleigh our 
bodies are disciplined by many material restrictions which the war 
has brought, but much more important than that, our souls have 
been and are being disciplined and tried by separation from loved 
ones. The thoughts of many here today will wander I am sure 
from time to time to far away places, be it Africa or Australia or 
the seven seas. Some of our members have suffered the loss of a 
loved one in the armed services and for them our hearts yearn 
and our prayers are offered. 

During this period of change and trial how has our Auxiliary 



The Woman's Auxiliary 



fared? Have we advanced, held our ground, or retreated? My 
answer to this must be based on your reports to me and to your 
Diocesan Officers, and on my contacts with you at District Meet- 
ings and through your letters. If our basis of judgment is to be on 
the low level of quantity I can report a ten per cent increase in 
membership. No new branches have been organized during the past 
year but those that were organized since 1941 are growing in 
membership and in knowledge of Auxiliary work. There is room 
for genuine service to the Auxiliary and thus to the church, how- 
ever, if some of the older established and strong Branches would 
lend leaders to instruct the younger and smaller groups in the 
work of the Auxiliary. On the financial side in a year that has 
confronted us with appeals from our country and our Allies both 
voluntary and compulsory, our Auxiliary members have still shown 
their faith in the cause we serve by not only meeting our Budget 
of $7400 but giving $684 above it plus specials to the amount of 
$822.55, and an increase in the United Thank Offering. 

Attendance at our Annual Conference at Vade Mecum last sum- 
mer was the largest on record, and at District Meetings attendance 
was astonishing and enthusiasm and serious interest in our re- 
sponsibilities as Churchwomen were marked. 

I have attended one meeting of each District this year, both the 
Spring and Fall meetings of two districts. I directed the Conference 
at Vade Mecum, and have planned this year's Conference with 
the help of Miss Rosalie Wilson. I led one section of the Insti- 
tute held at Christ Church, Cleveland, last June, attended the 
Adult Conference at Kanuga and the meeting of the executive 
committee of the Kanuga conferences; also several meetings of 
the Diocesan Council and the Diocesan departments of Christian 
Education and of Promotion. As your representative I was present 
at the meeting of the Provincial Woman's Auxiliary at the Synod in 
Birmingham, Alabama, in November. It will always be a matter of 
regret to me that I could not accept any invitations to visit the indi- 
vidual Branches, but I have tried to keep in touch with you by my 
monthly letters. In everything that I have done I have had the most 
loyal support and cooperation of the Executive Board, especially of 
your secretary, Mrs. John Huddle. Your past president assured me 
that this would be the case, but neither she nor I realized how great 
would be my need. During the last four months in particular 
there has been more than the cooperation of efficient and faithful 
co-workers. I have had a very definite feeling of support that I 
can ascribe only to their love and prayers. Nor has the kindness and 
understanding been on the part of the Board only. The Bishop has 
been a never failing source of wisdom and encouragement. I thank 
you all from my heart for your devotion to the Auxiliary and to me 
personally which has carried us through this difficult separation. 

In her address to you at our Annual Meeting last year your 
president stated that in her opinion our greatest weaknesses are 
failure to interest all the women in the Auxiliary and failure to 
devote time and thought to Christian Education. It is significant 
that your reports to me in answer to the question "What do you 
consider your weakness" almost without exception deal with these 
two points . . . not enough Church women are Auxiliary women . . . 
lack of Christian education. A third weakness often stated is lack 
of leadership especially in smaller Branches. I make bold to say 
that no Auxiliary in our Church has had more helpful guidance in 
Christian education than we have had in this Diocese for the 



10 Sixty-First Annual Report 



past three years. Perhaps one reason we fail to study more is that 
we are all busy doing things and have little time left for re- 
flection . . . still less for meditation and prayer. Yet we know 
that the basis of all our Christian life is knowledge of God's word, 
companionship with Him in prayer and at the Holy Communion. 
We feel the urgency, in these days, of post-war planning and our 
responsibility as Christians to offer the right solution. Obviously 
we cannot in our brief study periods evolve political and economic 
theories based on Christian teaching . . . what we can do individually 
and as a group is to learn to know better the Life of Christ. Look- 
ing at that perfect Life we shall see clearly our own sins as indi- 
viduals and as a nation in all their unloveliness. On fire with the 
conviction and understanding of God's great Love for mankind 
we shall have no difficulty in winning members for our Auxiliary or 
in carrying on all phases of our work for the extension of his 
Kingdom. When we know better what it means to be a Christian 
we shall have a measuring stick by which to appraise all social 
and political issues on which as Christians we must take our posi- 
tion. 

Who is he that overcometh the world but he that believeth that 
Jesus is the Son of God? And this is the victory that overcometh 
the world, even our faith. 

Margaret G. Holmes

14 Sixty-First Annual Report 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FINDINGS AND 
COURTESY 

The sixty-first Annual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary has 
mirrored a change in the lives of the women gathered at Good 
Shepherd Church. Whereas, the plea last year was that we not 
neglect our church work for the new responsibilities of war work, 
this year there has been no need for such a reminder. The work 
of Christ is paramount in the lives of men and women. It presents 
the only answer to the problems of war, and a post-war world. 

Our president, Mrs. U. T. Holmes, emphasized the need for re- 
newed interest and enthusiasm in the work of the Auxiliary. "Our 
bodies are being disciplined by restrictions and our souls tried by 
loss and separation." She reviewed the year's work, stating that 
no new auxiliaries had been formed, but that the membership has 
increased ten per cent. She urged a more earnest study of the 
Scriptures. Miss Constance Young was commended for the splendid 
sti*ides made by the Negro District. 

Mrs. E. G. Peoples, Chairman of Christian Education, empha- 
sized the importance of a program of study in order to develop a 
plan of action. 

Reverend Harvey Simmonds of Cape Mount, Liberia, expressed 
his gratitude for the gifts and prayers of the Woman's Auxiliary. 
He presented vividly the need for trained workers to fill the recent 
vacancies. 

Miss Sara Cheshire reported the excellent work being done by 
the Church among students at State College. 

We were privileged to have Miss Alpha Nash, member from 
the Province of Sewanee to the National Executive Board, who 
spoke to us about the meeting of the Board from which she had 
just come. "God's Gift and Our Task" is to be the keynote of the 
approaching Triennial, she told us. 

At the evening service, the Reverend W. C. Campbell, National 
Director of the Presiding Bishop's Committee on Laymen's Work 
inspired us "to put on the whole armor of God," and to have sin- 
cerity, love, and courage in preparation for the task that lies 
ahead. 

Miss Lillie Hill, our Diocesan Missionary, gave a graphic pic- 
ture of her twenty-nine years work at St. Andrew's Mission, and 
told how the war had affected her work. 

Reverend Rufus Womble, from Roxboro and Camp Butner, told 
of the work of the civilian chaplains, which is a vital part of the 
Church's program today. 

"Peace be unto you" were the opening words of Bishop Penick's 
address — not a negative but a positive peace. Our faith should 
remain firm, for God has surrounded us with physical evidences 
which bear testimony to the living and resurrected Christ. Just as 
Jesus breathed on His disciples imbuing them with the Holy 
Spirit, God breathed on Man, and a new spirit entered into him. 

We are grateful to Mr. Dick and to the ladies of the Hospitality 



The Woman's Auxiliary 15 



committee and to the hostesses for the warm welcome and generous 
hospitality under difficult war-time conditions. Our appreciation 
also goes to the ladies of the Edenton Street Methodist Church for 
the enjoyable luncheon. 

The two day session sends us home filled with enthusiasm and 
renewed zeal for our work for the Master. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Harry Winkler 
Mrs. Godfrey Browne

Women's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North Carolina pertaining to 
Cash Receipts and Disbursements for the year ended December 31, 
1942, and submit herewith our report. 

Recorded cash transactions for the year under examination 
are classified as to opening balances by funds, receipts by funds, 
disbursements by funds and cash balances by funds at the end of 
the year on Exhibit A. 

On Exhibit B, an analysis of receipts and disbursements by func- 
tions are shown. The items listed in red in the second column on 
Exhibit B indicate transfers of funds from the various accounts 
and the items in black represent different uses or accounts to which 
funds have been transferred. 

On Schedule B-l, we have analyzed the disbursements for 
"Specials." 

Receipts from individual branches of the Auxiliary are listed 
and classified on Schedule 1. 

Cash accounts were examined, cancelled checks inspected. A re- 
conciliation of the balance as shown by the Wachovia Bank and

REPORT OF UNITED THANK OFFERING CUSTODIAN 

In late Trinity of 1938, Forward was a small bright red book 
bearing as its title "This Book Is about Help" and on the fly-leaf 
was the foreword written by our great presiding Bishop. These were 
his words: "Help me!" This is the universal human cry. Help me 
to live! Help me to learn! Help me to a home ! Help me to survive! 
Help me to bare needs ! Help me to do right ! Help me to do my duty ! 
And God answers, "I know your needs. I will help you." Do we 
realize that He, finally, is our only help? Have you found His help? 
If you have, you are already thanking Him by helping others in His 
name. "Freely ye have received; freely give." 

(Signed) H. St. George Tucker 
Presiding Bishop 

This to me is the United Thank Offering. I believe that I can 
report to you that there is no woman in the Diocese of North Caro- 
lina who does not every day and maybe several times a day use 
that prayer, "Help me" and God answers, "I know your needs, I 
will help you." We are united in our call for help. But I cannot tell 
you the number of those who return to give thanks. Some do not. 
Many do. And from these grateful hearts came the offering for 
1942, of $8043.65. 

I suppose that there is not a woman here who has not given her 
offering for this Spring Ingathering, which, as you know, will be 
presented at the early service tomorrow morning. But if there is 
and you cannot be at the service, please give your gift to some friend 
to present for you. We have tomorrow's offering and the fall in- 
gathering before the whole for the three years of '41, '42, '43 will be 
presented at the General Convention in Cleveland, in October. 

You will be interested to know that for '41 and '42 our offering 
with interest is $16,091.15. Let us see that every woman in our 
Diocese has a chance to know of this offering and to take part in it. 

Do any of you know a little book called "Wings of Healing?" 
From it comes this "Note on Thanksgiving." 

"The psychology of thanksgiving is a most revealing study. Not 
only does thanksgiving register our gratitude for benefits received. 
It touches springs of receptivity in the soul and releases new powers 
of helpfulness. Thanksgiving passes into thanksliving." 

These notes are followed by John Oxenham's "A Little Te Deum 
of the Commonplace," which I bring to you : 
With hearts responsive 
And enfranchised eyes, 
We thank Thee, Lord, . . . 
For all things beautiful, and good, and true, 
For all things that seemed not good yet turned to good; 
For all the sweet compulsions of Thy will 
That chased, and tried, and wrought us to Thy shape ; 
For things unnumbered that we take of right, 
And value first when first they are withheld; 
For light and air ; sweet sense of sound and smell ; 
For ears to hear the heavenly harmonies ; 
For eyes to see the unseen in the seen; 
For vision of The Worker in the work; 
For hearts to apprehend Thee everywhere; 
We thank Thee, Lord! 

— John Oxenham

24 Sixty-First Annual Report 



REPORT OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION CHAIRMAN 

Through a Prayer of Study 

to 

A Plan of Action 

During the present Triennium we have been trying to qualify as 
"Witnesses to the Power of God." In 1941, "Witnessing through 
Service," was our goal and our special fields of study were China 
and the Migrants. It is interesting to note how much both have 
been in the news of the day ever since. In 1942, we were called to, 
"Witness through Worship," and study a Christian Imperative and 
Christian Roots of Democracy in Amex-ica. 

This year, as our vision increases and our horizon broadens we 
are called to, "Witness through Evangelism." 

Most of our study and thinking center around the planning of 
the Bases of a Just and Durable Peace and we know the only way 
this will ever be accomplished will be on the firm foundation of the 
Christian Family, Justice in Race Relations and really being, "Good 
Neighbors," to the world. 

For three years then, we have been moving through a program 
of study toward a plan of action. What is this plan of action to 
which our Presiding Bishop through his Ten Year Forward in 
Service plan, is challenging us? 

The answej' is printed in italics on the cover of a new pamphlet, 
"Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God and His Righteousness." What 
does this mean to us today? I think our task today is not so different 
from what Jesus conceived His to be when He rose in the Synagogue 
at Nazareth and read from the books of the prophet Esaias: "The 
Spirit of the Lord is upon me to preach the Gospel to the poor; He 
hath sent me to heal the broken-hearted, to preach deliverance to the 
captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them 
that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord." 

Does this sound very different from the statement of the United 
Council of Church Women in A Call to Christian Women? 

"At this time of the world's greatest tragedy we still believe, 
individually and collectively, that God reigns and that ultimately 
His will will prevail. In deep penitence for our share in the world's 
guilt and woe, we call upon the women of the Church to enter into 
the suffering and sacrifices of the human family, To combat the 
rising tide of hatred caused by war; To minister to those suffering 
from the ravages of war ; To maintain and strengthen the Christian 
fellowship ; To show friendship and understanding to. the men and 
women in service for the defense of our country; To maintain the 
integrity of the home; To continue to its fullest degree the on-going 
ministry of the Church, even to the uttermost parts of the earth; 
To consecrate ourselves to the task of building a democracy at home 
which recognizes individual worth and strives for justice to all the 
people; 

Finally to dedicate ourselves and our country to the task of help- 
ing to build a durable peace in a new world order based on love and 
justice. 

I pray God we may have a "Task Force," equal to the task. 

For this task of seeking and building the Kingdom of God we 
must have leaders, and this problem of real leadership is a tremendous 
one. Is it easy to find them ? Think over the organizations to which 
you have served on a nominating committee. You know it is not 
easy. It should not be so difficult, and would not if we could all real- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 25 



ize that every task well done gives one some training for leader- 
ship. Quoting from an article on leadership training by Miss Char- 
lotte Tompkins, "Leadership training begins when one says, 'Yes, I 
will,' to the question, 'Will you do this?' " 

Why is there, among us, such a dread of responsibility? It is a 
very serious thing, and is not confined to those among the lowly. Only 
recently in the Congress of the United States there was one who ad- 
vocated our participation in plans for peace, "Without Commit- 
ments," and was it not this same selfish fear of responsibility which 
kept us from taking our rightful place among the League of Nations 
twenty-five years ago, and with what dire consequences. 

The International Council of Religious Education has a little 
bulletin called, "The Price of Being a Leader," in which Erwin L. 
Shaver has written, "It means the consecration of a definite share 
of our energy, of our time, and of our best thinking. It means that 
we must actually give our personal selves to this task to a degree 
and in a manner which no other vocation or avocation demands, for 
at the heart of Christian character building is fellowship. It means 
that many other things will have to be given up. It truly means 
heroism — always a heroism of the commonplace — for somehow this 
sort of work is classed with those values which are intangible; but 
occasionally, if we rise to our highest levels, a heroism like that of 
many pioneers and prophets. It means above all and at its best the 
deepest humility; we must redeem the term, "Leadership" to de- 
note that humble devotion to service which Jesus gave as the diamond 
rule of life. It means that church workers must have the will to 
learn and grow young along with their pupils. It means that they 
must, to the degree to which they value their high calling as Christian 
workers, undergo a definite program of training in order to be 
workmen that need not be ashamed." 

This opportunity your Diocese offers you at Vade Mecum, your 
province offers you at Sewanee and Kanuga and your parish offers 
you every time you are requested to serve in any capacity. This will 
be my last message to you as your chairman of Christian Education 
and this is the thought I'd like to leave with you, quoted from the 
leaflet previously mentioned, 

"The only question which remains is: 'Are you able?'. Are you 
willing to pay the price of being a leader in the service of the Master 
Teacher? 

" 'Are ye able,' still the Master 
Whispers down Eternity, 
And heroic spirits answer, 
Now as then in Galilee: 

" 'Lord, we are able,' 
Our spirits are thine. 
Remold them, make us, 
Like Thee, divine. 
Thy guiding radiance 
Above us shall be 
A beacon to God, 
To love and loyalty." 

— Earl Marlatt.

26 Sixty-First Annual Report 



REPORT OF THE CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
CHAIRMAN 

The reports from the Parish Christian Social Relations Chair- 
men for 1942 indicate that the increased demand made on the women 
of the church due to the war, are being absorbed without any ap- 
preciable neglect of the regular activities of the Auxiliaries. 

There appears a growing interest in the work being done in hos- 
pitals and I am sure every one who participates will agree that this 
field of Social Service is very appealing and the results gratifying. 
Caring for the sick and helpless made up a large part of Christ's 
ministry to His people. 

Practically all of the Auxiliaries are carrying on some type of 
work with soldiers. These contacts are very interesting, but it must 
be remembered that the homely, shy, unattractive boys in uniform 
are probably more lonely and homesick than the boys you might 
choose from a group to entertain or have in your home. Our pro- 
gram for the soldier must constantly be changed or dropped al- 
together if the need no longer exists, but never discontinued because 
the work is hard and first enthusiasm has waned. We cannot be too 
critical of what the boys in uniform do unless we have done every- 
thing within our power to substitute good, wholesome entertainment 
and surroundings for evil influences that are always on the alert. 

This department is so broad in its functions, that I shall not at- 
tempt to mention the various types of work in which the women are 
taking an active interest. 

It is obvious that a careful, well-planned program, with economy 
of time, effort and finances in mind, is even more necessary now 
than in peace time. The opportunities for service are unlimited and 
these opportunities must be used to give ourselves more fully and 
freely to Christ's work in friendship with His people, to enlarge our 
Christian relationship, and to extend His Kingdom. 

There exists today a marked increase in juvenile unrest and de- 
linquency. We must constantly be aware of the strain and perplexi- 
ties our young people are experiencing and help them make the 
necessary adjustments with deeper conviction of what is right and 
what is wrong. 

Constant study is required not only to cope with our local prob- 
lems facing us each day, but to be aware of what we must face in 
the days to come. 

May the work of this department be performed intelligently and 
earnestly. Anything short of our very best should not be satisfac- 
tory to us in our efforts to carry on the work of Jesus Christ Our Lord, 
for the good of all mankind.

REPORT OF THE SUPPLY DEPARTMENT CHAIRMAN 

This is the first chance I have had to thank you for selecting me 
as Chairman of the Supply Department, I feel that this is a great 
privilege and honor to serve in this good work, and hope that I will 
be able to carry on the work as my predecessor, Miss Gant, has done. 
I am no speaker, but hope to show my appreciation of the honor by 
deeds more adequate than any words can express. 

We have all been engaged in war work the past year, but even 
this extra work has not lessened our interest in our Missions. 

Last fall we sent checks to our two Personals, one to Rev. Henry 
James McGhee of Tunica, Miss., and his wife. Quoting from his let- 
ter — "It is impossible for us to express our deep appreciation to you 
and all the others concerned for your generosity and kindness. Mrs. 
McGhee has gone up to Memphis to do her shopping, and I am sure 
she will get an abundant amount of pleasure out of this, as she 
always does. I will do the same thing a little later." A check was 
also sent to Rev. James MacKensie, Mullen, Nebraska, who wrote a 
very appreciative letter. I think we all prefer buying our own 
clothes rather than have them bought and sent to us. 

Our two Mission Allotments this year are: Miss Hattie Price, 
Good Shepherd Mission (Rocky Bar), Elkton, Va. She is doing a 
splendid work in this mountain Mission. She writes that her day 
begins at 6:30 in the morning and by nine o'clock I am ready to start 
out to do the work alone, since my two companions, two little girls I 
reared in the Mission House,, married and left me. I have pictures 
of this Mission which I will show at our meeting this afternoon. 

Our other Mission is the Fort Valley College Center, Fort Val- 
ley, Ga., the Rev. J. Henry Brown is in charge. This is a Mission 
school for negro boys and girls. From all the data I have received 
Rev. Brown is certainly doing an outstanding work among these 
young people. They are trained in all kinds of vocations which will 
fit them to be good citizens. We are glad to be of some help to these 
boys and girls. 

We have sent off several boxes of second-hand clothes to both 
Miss Price at Good Shepherd, and Rev. Brown at Fort Valley Col- 
lege Center. Also allotments of new clothes which have been so 
beautifully made by the different branches of the Auxiliary. I am 
sure that the children who wear them will be thankful for their 
Auxiliary friends. The negro branch of St. Ambrose, Raleigh, 
should be mentioned for their garments which they made and sent in. 

I would like to mention another outstanding work done by the 
District of Mecklenburg, under the leadership of Mrs. Dichtenmuel- 
ler. They sent in around 300 garments. Two hundred were made by 
the Auxiliary members. Before sending they had an exhibit of the 
garments which must have made a very good showing. 

We have also sent several boxes of clothing to our own Miss Lillie 
Hill. She writes that they have heloed her so much in her work. 
We have also sent clothes to other Missions in the State. I feel that 
we have done a good work this year, but not enough and I hope we 
can do more next year. 

The Program Meeting, which comes in January, is a problem to 



28 Sixty-First Annual Report 



have something new and interesting. This year we did have a little 
play put on by some of the branches, I believe Erwin, Burlington 
and Thomasville did use this play. I have not heard if any others 
had it or not. The play is called the "Missionary Barrel," and was 
written by a member of St. Philip's Church, Mrs. J. T. Cobb. I think 
it is very good and we put it on in Durham at one time. 

About sixty branches have paid their pledges. Miss Gant turned 
over to me last spring $623.82. After paying for all material, gar- 
ments bought which could not be made, two Personal checks, post- 
age and freight, I have on hand $624.07. 

What will be our report next year, will it be better? I am sure 
with all the things we have to be thankful for, we will be willing 
to give more of what we have to help others and. more, of our time 
to this worthy cause. 

I want to thank each and everyone for the cooperation and help 
they have given me this year. This work was new to me and I needed 
so much help. Thanks again and with God's blessing. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Martha Cowan Kuker 



REPORT OF THE INTERRACIAL COMMITTEE 

The report which follows was read by Miss Emma Hall, Chair- 
man of the Interracial Committee. She prefaced the reading with 
the announcement that Theodosia Hall is giving up the work of 
the Diocesan Church Worker to become associated with the work 
of the Good Samaritan Hospital. Someone will soon be found to 
continue the work for the Negro District. 

Report of the Diocesan Church Worker for the Negro District 

To the Rt. Reverend Edwin A. Penick, Bishop of the Diocese 
of North Carolina and the Woman's Auxiliary of this Diocese, I wish 
to make this report, which terminates to a certain extent my 
activities as the Negro Social Service Worker for this diocese. 

It was during the early spring that I was approached as to 
my desire and willingness to take a position in the Good Samaritan 
Hospital where it was felt that I might be of some help and at 
the same time render some Christian Social Service. The Bishop 
of the Diocese was approached and also all the members of the 
Executive Board of the Woman's Auxiliary and it seemed that it 
met with their approval. I began work with the job the first of 
April. 

I wish to express to all concerned my sincere appreciation for 
the opportunity to serve and to help prove that a worker, especially 
in smaller churches, is really worthwhile. Of course the field in 
which I have worked is, I think, the largest church in our diocese. 
But there are other churches in which I have been privileged to 
serve that a work like the one I have been trying to pursue, 
would be a godsend. 

In the two years and five months which I have been privileged 
to serve, I would not have you think that it has been an easy job, 
I did not expect that when I began it. There were difficulties and 
trials and there have been times and incidents which made us glad 
and made us feel that our efforts were worthwhile. From time to 
time I have attempted to give you some idea of what I was doing. 
Of course there is nothing material that you can touch and see, 



The Woman's Auxiliary 29 



but I do pray that some of the seed which I have attempted to 
plant will bring forth good fruit for the future of my race and 
the community in which I have worked. 

Especially do I wish to thank Miss Emma J. Hall and the good 
members of St. Peter's Auxiliaries and St. Martin's Auxiliaries 
all of Charlotte for their interest and encouragement. They have 
done much to make it possible for me to carry on. 

I would say in closing that I still have my interest in the com- 
munity, and the church and I do find so many opportunities in 
my contacts with the patients in the hospital to render Christian 
Social Service. 

I wish to again thank every one who has contributed to the 
support and encouragement of the work and to ask that I may 
have your sincere prayers wherever I may be and in whatever 
work I may find myself. 

Praying God's blessings on you and wishing for you every 
success, 

I beg to remain, 

Faithfully and sincerely, 

Theodosia Hall 



REPORT OF THE WORK OF THE CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Though this work is carried on by only a small number of the 
Parish Branches, I am happy to report an increased activity within 
those branches. Much literature is being contributed to our army 
camps, in addition to the institutions that are constantly remem- 
bered. Two branches contributed liberally to the Library Fund at 
national headquarters. 

As retiring Director I can truly say I wish I had been success- 
ful in awakening a Diocesan-wide interest in this organization. 
This aim I bequeath to my successor.

30 Sixty-First Annual Report 



REPORT OF THE MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

The Department of Missionary Correspondents is growing in a 
conception of what it can mean in the life of our Diocese. Its aim 
is to inspire understanding and love of the missionary work of 
the Church by methods that appeal most to the average person — 
by personal contacts with the missionaries themselves. Through 
this love and through knowledge and prayer we can hope to have 
a share in bringing recruits to the mission field and lend our sup- 
port to their efforts to train themselves for their task. 

There are at present openings in the home mission field for 
teachers and trained nurses. For the time being few workers can 
be sent to foreign fields because of the war but there are workers 
now being trained in order to go out as soon as the way is open. 
There is still a need for two graduate nurses for Alaska, a matron 
for an Alaskan hospital, a teacher for a girl's school in Liberia, 
and a nurse for the same field, and for a woman with religious 
education training for work in the Virgin Islands. Parish cor- 
respondents should present these needs to their branches and 
be ready to help potential volunteers with information obtainable 
from the Church Mission House. 

This department is in a state of development and you will see 
it improve in methods and grow in activity under my successor. 
Some district correspondents report little increased interest that 
they can see, others find a great deal more. The Negro District 
particularly shows an awakening interest in this work. 

Since the National Headquarters has discontinued the plan of 
assigning a Prayer Partner to each district of a Diocese, and wishes 
us to assume responsibility in personal ways for the missionaries 
who go out from our Diocese, it seems wise for us to conform to a 
Nation-wide plan and concentrate our efforts on this group of 
missionaries instead of on a single Prayer Partner Missionary for 
each district. Those branches who have become closely attached 
to a Prayer Partner of long standing, may choose to continue in- 
dependently their happy association with her, in addition to their 
part in the Missionary Correspondents Plan for their district. 

The Executive Board has approved this change of plan to con- 
form to the national plan. Therefore the term Prayer Partner 
becomes obsolete and in its place we have the Missionary Cor- 
respondent in Diocese, District, and Parish. 

The letters from our Missionaries are a challenge to our own 
zeal in the spread of the Kingdom and it is our desire to continue 
steadfast in prayer for them and their work.

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

On account of the uncertainty of travel facilities the District 
of Edgecombe felt it wise to forego the Spring Meeting of 1943, 
however, a most inspiring and well attended meeting was held in 
Roanoke Rapids on October 29th, 1942. 

The reports of Christian Social Relations Chairman, United 
Thank Offering Custodian, the Christian Education Chairman, Sup- 
ply Secretary, Prayer Partner Correspondent and Young People's 



The Woman's Auxiliary 31 



Work, as a whole, measured up fully to the usual standard of 
accomplishment and in some branches of work, far outstripped that 
of the previous year. 

We were most fortunate in having our President, Mrs. Urban T. 
Holmes, Jr., and Mr. Emmet Gribbin as our guest speakers. 

Mrs. Holmes in her address discussed the Presiding Bishop's 
Theme of the Year — "Freedom Through Christ" — and also presented 
the Educational program for the Church, giving choice of 

1. Latin America 

2. Christian Family Life 

3. Race Relations 

4. A Just and Durable Peace 

Many salient points on these topics were brought out and fully 
discussed. 

Mr. Gribbin, from the Department of Promotion, presented the 
missionary projects of the Diocese, terming this work as "Organ- 
ized Evangelism" and urging us to be more fully informed in order 
to do this work more effectively and for a more stimulating belief 
in Missions. 

Many Branches of the Auxiliary reported gains in membership, 
and more active cooperation with other Churches and local organ- 
izations. 

Perhaps the most outstanding note in our report is the splendid 
increase in the United Thank Offering Report. In the face of 
greater increased calls for National Work, Bond Drives, Red Cross, 
etc., our Auxiliary has the largest report we have ever had — Fall 
of 1942, $673.62; Spring of 1943, $889.37. 

One Executive Board Meeting was held in the Fall. 

A Fall meeting will be held in 1943. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary P. Philips 



REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

The Spring Meeting 1942 was held in St. Paul's Church, Salis- 
bury. 

Mrs. U. T. Holmes, Jr., our new President, made her first official 
visit to the District and gave such an inspiring talk and challenge 
to the women that they were not willing to discontinue one meeting 
a year because of difficulty in travel — so when the Fall Meeting was 
called to meet in St. James' Church, Kannapolis, an even larger 
number was present to witness for their "Lord and Master" and 
carry on the Church's Program during this hour of stress and suf- 
fering. 

As retiring Chairman, I wish to commend the fine women in the 
District for their earnest desire to be workers in His Kingdom. May 
they go "Forward Day by Day." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Marie H. Sigmon, 
Retiring Chairman 

The Forsyth-Rowan District held its Fall Meeting on October 
9th, 1942, at St. James' Church, Kannapolis; at this time it was 



32 Sixty-First Annual Report 



moved and seconded to have annual meetings only for the duration; 
consequently there has been no meeting this Spring of 1943. 

The Nominating Committee reported the names of the following 
as new officers: 

Mrs. Hardin Jewett, Winston-Salem, Chairman 

Mrs. A. W. Fansler, Statesville, Christian Social Relations 

Secretary 
Mrs. Peter Hairston, Cooleemee, Supply Secretary 
This report of the Nominating Committee was accepted. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sarah R. Jewett 



REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The District of Granville has been extremely fortunate in 
having two Missionary speakers at the two meetings held since 
the annual meeting in Tarboro. On May 12th, 1942, Oxford was 
the Hostess Branch and "Peace" was the keynote subject. At each 
District meeting we have studied some department of the Auxiliary. 
Miss Corina Gant of Burlington gave us a wonderful address on 
the Supply Department at the meeting in Oxford and Miss Ruth 
Merritt of Louisburg College, returned Missionary from Brazil, 
spoke on "Brazil challenges missionary interest." This address and 
the one by Miss Mildred Hudgins of Louisburg College, returned 
Missionary from Japan, were entertaining, inspiring and educa- 
tional. Miss Hudgins spoke at the District Meeting held in War- 
renton, October 28th, 1942, as also did our new President, Mrs. U. T. 
Holmes. Mrs. Holmes spoke on "Our Work in War Times." The 
keynote of this meeting was "Visions." The writer of the Book 
of Proverbs has spoken a most practical, workable and everyday 
truth when he said, "Where there is no vision the people perish." 
The Branches in the District of Granville are really using the 
prophet's words as their guide for they are doing splendid and 
consecrated work that shows "Vision." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Louise R. King 



REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

The District of Guilford reports two very fine and inspiring 
meetings during 1942. The spring meeting was held in Holy Com- 
forter in Burlington in May; the fall one in Holy Trinity, Greens- 
boro, in October. Both meetings were well attended. At the spring 
meeting Miss Ida Tate, a native of England, and a missionary to 
the Orient for twenty years, gave the main address and spoke on 
China and Korea. At the fall meeting Rev. Emmet Gribbin dis- 
cussed the Church's Program. Miss Jetty Odell, one of our own 
girls, who is doing missionary work in East Carolina, made a very 
interesting talk, using as her text: "I am the Way, the Truth, arid 
the Life." We felt very fortunate in having our diocesan President 
and two past Presidents of the Auxiliary present at this meeting. 

An educational institute was held in the afternoon with Mrs. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 33 



William J. Gordon and Mrs. E. G. Peoples as leaders. It was decided 
to have only one meeting a year for the duration, and that one to 
be held in the fall. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Hattie M. Cox 



REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

The District of Mecklenburg held its Spring meeting at St. 
Paul's, Monroe, May 13th, 1942. Mrs. U. T. Holmes, our new 
Diocesan President, gave a grand talk on Auxiliary work. In the 
Church of the Holy Comforter, Charlotte, we held our Fall meeting, 
November 18th, with Rev. Kenneth Morris, returned missionary 
from Japan, giving us an inspiring talk on the Japanese Christians. 
We had the rare good fortune of having Mrs. Henry Chapman, our 
District Prayer Partner, with us for this meeting. The District 
Chairman of Christian Education held an Institute for the Branch 
Chairmen after the regular District Meeting. The District was 
well represented both at Kanuga and Vade Mecum. We had a 
quiet day scheduled for January with the Bishop as our leader, 
but again had to cancel it — it's getting to be a habit. Our Spring 
meeting will be held at St. Peter's, Charlotte, May 19th. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Billy McEachern 



REPORT OF THE NEGRO DISTRICT 

Time was too short, this first year of service, to do the tenth of 
what one wished, to have the Auxiliary branches among us realize 
what a wonderful privilege we have in sharing in the work of this 
great organization. We ' are grateful, however, for definite signs 
of splendid cooperation among many of us. The first real exhibition 
of this was shown at the District Meeting held October 14th, at the 
Tuttle House, Raleigh. Although traveling was restricted and dif- 
ficult, the weather threatening, a large delegation, extending across 
the state, practically overflowed the large reception room. 

The cordiality with which the St. Agnes' hostesses, at Tuttle, 
received us and the fine spirit of cooperation between St. Augus- 
tine's and St. Ambrose's branches in entertaining us could never be 
forgotten. 

The district comprises 18 branches; 12 of these had delegates 
present: 2 sent written reports and 3 others sent delayed letters 
expressing regrets and assuring us of their interest and help. 

The meeting opened with the celebration of the Holy Communion 
with quite a number of "early comers" partaking. 

Business session was full of enthusiasm throughout and the 
reports gave encouragement and inspiration. 

The main guest speaker was the Rev. R. Emmet Gribbin, of 
Chapel Hill, who brought a splendid message. 

Miss Theodosia Hall, Diocesan Auxiliary Worker, glowed with 
her account of camp life last summer at Camp Pollard. Her plea 
for help met favorable response. 

Bishop Penick congratulated us on our splendid attendance and 



34 Sixty-First Annual Report 



spoke words of hope and admonition for greater work. At the close 
of his address the Chairman, on behalf of the district, presented 
him with a parchment congratulating him on his 20 years of mem- 
orable service. 

Our president, Mrs. U. T. Holmes, Jr., whom we now sincerely 
regret to lose, inspired us greatly always with helpful messages 
and willingness to serve. This was no exception at our meeting. We 
pray God's blessings on her and hers and that He soon return them 
to our diocese. 

Miss Emma Hall, Interracial Chairman, was present with her 
usual aid and enthusiasm. 

The chairman has continually urged the importance of growing 
spiritually and of using means at hand for this growth, in each 
of our meetings. Putting "First things first" with Christ as our 
leader. 

It has been gratifying to learn that many have had well planned 
programs being carried on during the year. Responses to requests 
and letters answered have surpassed many other years we have 
known. There were evidences that annual reports went in more 
nearly on time with greater efforts to meet obligations. A com- 
plete statement of our financial status is not available here but the 
Chairman was gratified to have the Diocesan Treasurer write, "I 
have never seen such interest shown." Central Fund, according 
to last information, was $17.50 paid representing only 6 branches. 
This must be improved. 

The district U. T. 0. custodian reported, in January, $167.26 
representing 14 branches; many paid much more than in some years 
previous. Notwithstanding, some branches showing splendid re- 
ports with local activities, failed to see the importance of sharing 
with others in the Mission fields. Remember how He said, "It is 
more blessed to give than to receive." Those who share will find 
their own pails fuller — try it. 

Each chairman of departments has exhibited unusual concern 
about their duties — desiring to have the departments function 
properly. 

Thanks to all and may we pray : 

"Lo! I come with joy to do 
The Master's blessed will 
Him in outward words pursue 
And serve His pleasure still 
Faithful to my Lord's commands 
I still would choose the better part 
Serve with careful Martha's hands 
And loving Mary's heart." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Constance Young 



REPORT OF DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

As it always evidenced by their annual reports, the eleven 
branches of the District of Orange continue their fine progressive 
work. The October meeting at Chapel Hill was full of inspiration 
and largely attended. At this time a new District Chairman, Mrs. 
R. J. M. Hobbs of Chapel Hill, was elected. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 35 



It is inspiring to note that despite the many activities of war- 
time, the interest in the work of the Church has not slackened. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Eleanor Bird 

REPORT OF DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

The spring meeting of the district was held in Calvary Church, 
Wadesboro on April the 25th. There was a good attendance, with 
all branches represented except Laurinburg, and a number of vis- 
itors were present. We were most fortunate in having Mrs. Holmes, 
our president, who gave us a most inspiring message, also Mrs. 
Peoples, who told of the work of her department and conducted 
a round table discussion with all the educational secretaries of 
the branches. Mrs. Francis Clarkson reported the conference she 
had recently attended in Ohio on "Problems of World Peace after 
the War." An unusual feature of our meeting was special music 
consisting of two vocal solos given by talented young singers 
accompanied by Mrs. H. H. Hardison. The beautiful organ in Cal- 
vary Church had very recently been dedicated in memory of the 
late Mr. and Mrs. W. A. Edmunds, the latter a faithful and devoted 
member of the Woman's Auxiliary for many years. A report of 
the Tarboro Convention was given and various matters of business 
were discussed. Mrs. David F. Rice of Hamlet was elected district 
chairman to succeed Mrs. R. T. B. Little of Wadesboro and Miss 
Eloise Smith of Rockingham (at present in Charlotte) was elected 
Educational Secretary for the district. It was decided to hold only 
one meeting a year — hereafter— to be in the fall. Rev. Mr. Mann of 
Rockingham-Hamlet and Mr. Brown of Southern Pines gave noon- 
day prayers and meditation and the president of each branch gave 
a brief report. 

In the fall the shortage of gas and the maneuver travel made 
a meeting impossible but we are planning to have one in Hamlet 
early this fall. We sincerely hope that many of our members 
will attend summer conferences. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary L. Rice 

REPORT OF DISTRICT OF WAKE 

The Wake District of the Woman's Auxiliary to the National 
Council held its annual meeting at Saint Saviour's Church, Raleigh, 
N. C, October 16, 1942. 

All nine branches were represented and had excellent reports. 
The year's work was characterized by a note of progress and an 
intelligent interpretation of auxiliary work in its various depart- 
ments. Saint Stephen's reported a new system of raising money; 
personal pledges. 

The United Thank Offering showed a decided increase over 
last year. 

A beautiful tribute to the late Mrs. J. A. Bridges of Erwin, 
beloved United Thank Offering Custodian, written by Mrs. E. H. 
Bost, was delivered by Mrs. W. N. Tillinghast. 

Of outstanding value to the meeting were the speakers who 



36 Sixty-First Annual Report 



inspired their hearers with the power of Christ and the Church, 
and the fuller realization of their responsibilities to the auxiliary- 
program. 

The Rev. Emmet Gribbin spoke forcefully on the Church's Pro- 
gram for the Promotion of Christian Education in the Diocese, 
declaring that the most important phase of Christianity is the 
mission work of the Church. 

Mrs. E. G. Peoples on Christian Education, stressed the Church 
having priority in our lives and begged her hearers to keep them 
ringing; the Church bells and the Liberty Bell. 

Mrs. U. T. Holmes, Diocesan President, gave warning that 
every Churchman was being watched today as never before. She 
declared that the only solution to the problems of today is the 
Church. With only one half the population of the United States 
being "Churched," the field is wide open for evangelism, declared 
Mrs. Holmes. 

The offering was given to State College for a student worker. 

In closing, may I say that I have been happy to be leader for 
the District of Wake and I am making the plea that we learn the 
power of Christ in us, and that we give ourselves for His service. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. I. M. Bailey

GUIDE LINES FOR PARISH PROGRAMS 
1943-1944 

Prepared by Mrs. W. S. Holmes, 
Chairman Christian Education 

"The task of the Woman's Auxiliary today calls for the best in 
mind, body, and spirit that the women of the Church have to give. 
It has been said that what this age needs is men and women with 
deep spiritual insight, intellectual penetration, and strong moral 
passion. The call to the Woman's Auxiliary in this modern time is 
for nothing less, for the Woman's Auxiliary is the women of the 
Church striving individually and corporately so to develop the re- 
ligious life of the womanhood of the Church that they may share 
with God in creating a Christian society here on earth. 

"At the Church Missions House the Woman's Auxiliary is much 
like a Department of the National Council, except that it is in addi- 
tion an auxiliary to each Department. Like the Departments, the 
Woman's Auxiliary has an Executive Secretary with general ad- 
ministrative and executive supervision of its activities, and associate 
secretaries who are responsible for different phases of the work such 
as education, the United Thank Offering, organization, supply, 
Christian social relations, personnel and field." — Women in the Life 
of the Church. 

Theme for Triennium, beginning with Triennial Meeting, Oc- 
tober 2-9, 1943, is God's Gift and Our Task. Theme for Forward 
in Service, 1943-44, is Seek Ye First the Kingdom of God and His 
Righteousness. God's gift is His Kingdom and our task is to let 
Him use us to bring it in. Let us recognize the opportunity that is 
ours and accept our task. "Here we offer ourselves ... to be a 
reasonable . . . sacrifice."

National Woman's Auxiliary Secretary 
Miss Dorothy Stabler 

"As though in preparation for such a time as this, God has been 
building up a Christian fellowship which now extends into almost 
every nation and binds citizens of them all in unity and mutual 
love. ... It is the great new fact of our time. . . . Here is one 
great ground of hope for the coming days." — Archbishop of Can- 
terbury. 

The hearts of all Christians burn within them as they think of 



The Woman's Auxiliary 59 



plans for a new world after the war. A durable peace is the end of 
all their desiring and they know there can be none until peoples of 
every clime and race acknowledge each other as brothers. 

"Our Father," we say, and we must mean just that. "Thou 
shalt love thy neighbor as thyself" is one of the two great com- 
mandments.

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY* 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then 
let him say, 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as 
Diocesan Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally re- 
ceived and admitted into their respective offices in your presence, 
and that we should ask the blessing of God upon them for their sup- 
port and guidance in the performance of the duties which you have 
laid upon them. 

Lord, save these thy servants. 
Who put their trust in thee. 
Send them help from thy holy place. 
And evermore mightily defend them. 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, Lord, in all our doings, with thy most gracious 
favour, and further us with thy continual help; that in all our 
works begun, continued and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy 
Name, and finally, by thy mercy, obtain everlasting life; Through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give thy Grace, we 
humbly beseech thee, to these thy servants who have been chosen to 
serve thee in the special work for which they have been selected; 
Grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love in 
the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportunities 
for service, to the glory of thy great Name and the benefit of thy 
holy Church; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us O God, with the vision of thy Being and thy Beauty, 
that in the strength of it we may work without haste and without 
rest; Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be faith- 
ful, zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace 
of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God our Father and the 
guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. Amen. 

Benediction 

The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, 
in your work and in your worship, this day and always, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY PRAYER 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy kingdom, and make us so thankful 
for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make him known 
to all nations as their Saviour and their King: through the same 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Missions 

Almighty God, help us, we pray thee, to shed abroad the light 
of Thy Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy kingdom, 
that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our gifts; 
so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy glory, 
as the waters cover the sea; through Thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

For Guidance of the Holy Spirit 

God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please 
Thee; mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct 
and rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Volunteers 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young 
man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement of Thy 
Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, with such 
love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the uttermost parts 
of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all things which are 
for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

A Prayer for the Diocese 

God, whose love reachest unto the ends of the world, bless, 
we pray Thee, this Diocese; and grant that all who share its benefits 
may show forth Thy glory by deeds and by gifts for the spread of 
Thy Kingdom; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for the Thompson Orphanage 

Almighty God, who art the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons of 



68 Sixty-First Annual Report 



this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties committed 
to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and earnest- 
ness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their minds, 
purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have con- 
tributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never- 
failing succession of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated 
through all generations, as a blessed memory, and their good deeds 
be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

The Prayer for the Box Work 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, that 
it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, we 
beseech Thee, upon the Box Work of Thy Church, especially in this 
Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, the sick 
and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens with our 
ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

Prayer for Rural Work 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, Whose flocks 
are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts the hope of a 
better country; bless all who search for Thy sheep in scattered 
places, that they may fetch them home to Thee; Who art with the 
Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen. 

For Religious Education 

O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the 
Truth and the Life, grant that we, looking unto Him may set for- 
ward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy chil- 
dren, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Social Service 

Guide us, O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, 
and in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, mak- 
ing the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest. Who 
dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and joy of 
the citizens of that holy land. Amen. 

The Forward Movement 

We pray Thee, God, for Thy Blessing upon the Forward Move- 
ment of Thy Church. Use it, we beseech Thee, to open our eyes to 
the needs of men for the Gospel of Christ, and to the opportunities 
that lie before the Church to extend His Kingdom. Stir up, O Lord, 
the wills of all Thy people to share in this work with gladness of 
heart and self-sacrificing spirit. Let not our purpose slack, but let 
the kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom of our God and of 
His Christ. Amen. 

For Christian Unity 

Lord Jesus Christ, Who didst pray for Thy disciples that they 
might be one even as Thou art one with the Father; draw us to Thy- 
self, that in common love and obedience to Thee, we may be united 
to one another in the fellowship of the one Spirit, that the world 
may believe Thou art Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Amen. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 69 



A Prayer for Every Day 

O Almighty God, Who canst bring good out of evil and makest 
even the wrath of man turn to Thy praise; we beseech Thee so to 
order and dispose the issue of the war in Europe that the human 
race, and especially all Christendom, may be brought through this 
strife to a lasting peace and that the nations of the world may be 
united in a firmer fellowship for the promotion of Thy glory and the 
good of all mankind; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Use Before and at the Time of the Election of Officers 

Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so chosen 
give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and to all of 
us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every duty, to do 
all to the glory of God, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For Diocesan Missionaries 

O Lord, without whom our labour is but lost, and with whom Thy 
little ones go forth as the mighty: We humbly beseech thee to 
prosper all works in thy church undertaken according to thy holy 

will, (especially the work of ) and grant to 

thy labourers a pure intention, patient faith, sufficient success upon 
earth, and the blessedness of serving thee in heaven; through Jesus 
Christ Our Lord. Amen. 

Thanksgiving 

Almighty God, whose compassions fail not, and Whose loving 
kindness reacheth unto the world's end: We give Thee humble thanks 
for all the great things Thou hast done and are doing for the children 
of men; for the opening of heathen lands to the light of Thy truth; 
for making paths in the deep waters and highways in the desert; 
for knitting nation to nation in the bond of fellowship, and for the 
planting of Thy Church in all the earth. merciful Father, in whom 
the whole family in heaven and earth is named, fill full our hearts 
with grateful love for this Thy goodness, granting grace henceforth 
to serve Thee better and more perfectly to know Thee; through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For the United Thank Offering 

Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special grace for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and draw us 
into closer friendship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou has given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy kingdom, through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

For the Church's Mission 

Pour out, we beseech Thee, O Lord, Thy Spirit upon Thy Church, 
that to all its members may come new visions, new life, new fellow-

ship with Christ, its living Head. Send us out, if thou wilt and 
through us send out many another to work for the extension of Thy 
kingdom throughout the world. Open our hearts that we may receive 
Thy power; open our eyes that we may see Christ with hands out- 
stretched to bless. Do with us what Thou wilt and as Thou wilt. So 
shall the earth be filled with the knowledge of Thyself as the waters 
cover the sea. And to Thee be the glory and praise, now and for 
evermore. Amen. 

For Peace 

O Christ, who by a Cross of love didst turn the counsels of sin and 
hate into the healing of the world, proclaim, we beseech thee, to the 
peoples of the nations the things which belong to their true peace; 
that they may rise with a single voice to forgive past wrong, to re- 
pent present bitterness, and to remember only their unity in thee 
and thy kingdom of love, who livest with the Father and the Holy 
Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen. 

For the Kingdom of God 

O master of the hearts of men, who art the Light of every man 
that cometh into the world, send forth the women messengers of 
Thy church to enlighten all men everywhere with a knowledge of 
their sonship and their place in Thy Kingdom. Strengthen and sus- 
tain Thy witness bearers in every land. Deepen in us the conscious- 
ness of the unity of our race, made of one blood, possessing one life, 
and having one need. Quicken our hearts to respond to this need. 
Make us Thy instruments in redeeming the world and in drawing all 
men unto Thee. We ask this in Thy name, Christ our Saviour and 
Redeemer. Amen. 

Benediction 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the 
Holy Spirit, rest upon us and upon all our work and worship done 
in His Name. May He give us light to guide us, courage to support 
us, and love to unite us, now and for evermore. Amen.

FOREWORD 

Whoever reads this little book with care will discover an unfolding 
theme. For the past year, the members of the Woman's Auxiliary have 
focused their attention upon the meaning of "God's Gift and our Task." 
This motto has been the subject of their thinking, the impulse of their* 
prayers and the topic of many inspiring programs. Indeed, the doctrine 
imbedded in this phrase is the foundation of all Christian work. What 
was God's "Gift"? His Kingdom? Yes. "It is your Father's good 
pleasure to give you the kingdom." Is it immortality? Yes. "The gift 
of God is eternal life." But even more precious for us than these im- 
measurable gifts was the primary act of his mercy: "God so loved the 
world that He gave his only begotten Son." This initial act of infinite 
love was the beginning of man's redemption. Our "task" is merely to re- 
ceive what He bestows. This is not a reluctant duty because love's yoke 
is easy and love's burden is light. "Ye shall receive power after that the 
Holy Ghost is come upon you, and ye shall be witnesses unto- me." The 
joyousness of that "task"" glows like a warm light all through this book. 
It is a simple, unaffected story of how faithful women received God's Gift 
and then, like true witnesses, gave it away. This is how the good news 
"grows from more to more."

Will you dedicate the use of this book with the fol- 
lowing prayer? — l. g. p. 

Father of all mankind, throughout this day, and 
every day, help me to remember that a very real 
portion of Thy Kingdom has been placed in my 
keeping. Therefore teach me to love Thee: with 
all my mind — that I may think Thy thoughts after 
Thee, from dawn to dark, making beautiful and 
significant each decision of my daily living; help 
me to remove all prejudice and small-mindedness, 
O Lord: 

with all my heart — that I may love those whom 
Thou lovest, feeling for even the most unlovable 
and difficult of Thy children Thine own everlasting 
mercy : 

with all my soul — that I may seek fresh ways in 
which we can all be one in Jesus Christ our Lord, 
praying for Thy divine power to surge through my 
commonplace routine from morning till night: 

with all my strength — that I may work the works 
of Him who sent me while it is day, seeking to 
channel through every act Thy devotion to the 
needs of both my neighbor and myself. Remind 
me from moment to moment that this is not option- 
al, but the last command of Jesus Christ, our Lord. 
Quicken me and use me this day, for Thy name's 
sake. Amen.

Duties Suggested for Parish Missionary Correspondents 

1. Branch missionary correspondents should let no meeting pass 
without giving (or having someone give) some news item about some 
missionary, preferably those from our Diocese. 

2. Encourage members to subscribe to Forth and read it. The 
branch could subscribe to this paper and pass it among members. It is 
from this paper and the North Carolina Churchman that yon can get 
many news items of interest. 

3. Write to missionaries without expecting an answer in return. 

4. See that prayers are said for these missionaries at church services 
and auxiliary meetings. Encourage your members to pray for them in 
their private devotions. 

5. Give the rector of your church news items about missionaries and 
ask him to announce them at church services. 

6. Write to Church Missions House, 281 Fourth Avenue, New York 
City, and ask for material concerning openings for work in the mission 
field; the training necessary to fill such jobs, and scholarships available 
in case an applicant cannot finance this training. Use this material for a 
program or a full report at an auxiliary meeting. Pass it on to your young 
people for them to use in Church School or Young People's Service League

18 Sixty-Second Annual Report 

PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

President's address to the Annual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary 
in the Diocese of North Carolina, assembled at St. Paul's Church, Winston- 
Salem, N. C, April 18, 1944. 

Bishop Penick, Reverend Clergy, visitors and members of the Woman's 
Auxiliary in the Diocese of North Carolina. 

We have come together in this, our sixty second Annual Meeting to 
consider God's Gift and Our Task. It is significant that the service of 
worship in which we have just participated is called, An Act of Assurance. 
In this day of : 'Men's hearts failing them for fear and for looking after 
those things which are coming on the earth", we need assurance, assurance 
of the goodness, love, purpose, and power of God, and confidence in the 
ultimate victory, which cometh from God. 

We who have had the responsibility of planning the program for this 
meeting, have hopes that we shall receive here a new vision of God's Gift 
and a new strength for Our Task. 

The thing that has struck me most forcefully during this, my first 
year as President, is the difference in peoples' responses. The same thing 
will be true of this meeting. There will be some seed sown here which 
will fall by the wayside, some upon stony places, some among thorns, 
also, please God, there will be other which falls into good ground and brings 
forth fruit, some an hundredfold. Let us look to our responses! 

As Stephen Bayne, in his, Gifts of The Spirit says: "We must mean 
it when we say we want to know more about God's will for us and His 
provision for us. We must be expectant that He asks great things, heroic 
things from us and His Church, and we must be ready to do His will as 
He gives us light to know it." 

All of these different kinds of responses added together have made a 
good year in the life of the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of North 
Carolina. 

The faithfulness and efficiency of your officers, and the generosity of 
your response have made this possible. One new branch of an established 
auxiliary, and two new auxiliaries have been added to our membership 

I have tried to keep in very close touch with each branch through 
monthly letters in which I have undertaken to set forth the details of, 
"Our work for the extension of His Kingdom". It was my great pleasure 
to attend all nine of the District Meetings last fall, and to be encouraged 
both by reports of accomplishments and attendance, as well as by the en- 
thusiasm of our women. I attended the Adult Conference at 
Kanuga, directed the Woman's Auxiliary Conference at Vade Mecum, 
assisted in the Rural Institutes, and have been present at meetings of the 
Diocesan Executive Council, the Kanuga Board of Managers, the Depart- 
ment of Christian Education, and the Board of Managers of the Thompson 
Orphanage. 

I have conducted one three day institute on the Woman's Auxiliary 
and have been pleased to accept nearly every invitation extended to speak 
at parish meetings. The high light of the year was, of course, the General 
Convention held in Cleveland last October, about which you have heard 
in detail, but I cannot refrain from again stating what a joy it is to 



The Woman's Auxiliary 10 

realize oneself a part of so great a whole as the Protestant Episcopal 
Church in the United States of America, it being a vital part of Christ's 
body — The Church. There in Cleveland we saw for ourselves the quality 
of our leaders and rejoiced. There we felt ourselves truly united in a great 
fellowship of worship, study and work. 

In making plans for our work in the future, let us consider carefully 
the closing paragraph in the report of the Executive Secretary, made at 
the Triennial. 

"In review it seems clear that in spite of demands 
upon women as citizens and the emotional strains of war- 
time separation of families, the state of Women's work in 
the Church today, so far as it can be judged from reports 
and observation is encouraging; judged, that is, by the 
standard of past performance. Judged in the light of the 
opportunities for service and the need for leadership ; 
measured by the purpose of God for His Church and the 
potential power of His followers we cannot be content. 
So long as we are reaching only a small fraction of the 
women of the Church, not to mention the unchurched; 
so long as there is one woman who thinks of the Church 
in less than world terms; so long as we make study a 
substitute for action or action a substitute for thinking or 
both study and action a substitute for worship, we cannot 
rest upon our achievements. It seems clear to your staff 
that as we look ahead we must be diligent in season and 
out in our effort to plumb the depths of meaning for the 
service we offer, to think in terms of purposes, that our 
action, whether it be sewing or serving of tables, effecting 
reforms by influencing legislation, or giving volunteer 
service in our communities may reflect our Christian con- 
viction." 

What is our Christian conviction? It was well stated in the Bishop's 
Pastoral Letter, read by our own Bishop at the last General Convention. 

"In the development of His creative purpose, God uses 
our human co-operation. So also he places upon those 
who are redeemed the responsibility of helping to extend 

the benefits of redemption to all mankind" "Our 

faith in the invincible Christ, whom hatreds of the world 
could not, and cannot defeat, provides us with the assur- 
ance that we too may become more than conquerors 
through the power of Him who died, and rose again." 

In the confidence given by this assurance, may each woman be found 
ready to do her part to help bring to pass that to which our Presiding 
Bishop has called us, 

"Through world Evangelism to, World fellowship in Christ." 

— Leah Graves Peoples

The Rev. James S. Cox, Rector of St. Paul's, led the opening devotions 
using "An Act of Assurance."

The Woman's Auxiliary 21 



Mrs. V. K. Hart reported on Christian Social Relations; Mrs. W. R. 
Kuker for the Supply Department and Mrs. R. H. Lewis for the United 
Thank Offering. 

The Diocesan Treasurer, Mrs. R. H. Bouligny, gave a splendid report 
including in it a statement of the appropriations made by the Executive 
Board of the balance on hand at the close of 1943. She moved that the 
appropriations so made by accepted by the meeting; motion seconded by 
Miss Lillie Hill and carried. 

Mrs. W. S. Holmes moved that the Treasurer's report be adopted ; 
seconded by Mrs. V. K. Hart; carried. 

At this point Mrs. Francis Clarkson raised the question as to whether 
the meeting had the authority to apportion the balance without consid- 
eration of the law which provides that equal parts of the budget money 
go to the work inside and outside of the Diocese respectively. Mrs. Peoples 
referred this matter to the Credentials Committee for consideration and 
adjustment. 

Mrs. Bouligny then told the meeting of the decision of the Executive 
Board to raise our budget to $8000 for the coming year. She moved that 
this be accepted; it was seconded by Mrs. Landon Hill and carried. 

The budget was not itemized at the Executive board meeting and the 
president asked that we have the consent of the meeting: authorizing the 
board to do this. Mrs. Lewis moved that this be done and it was seconded 
by Miss Wright and carried. 

The secretary read a letter from Mrs. F. S. Spruill of Rocky Mount 
expressing her interest in the meeting and enclosing a check for twenty- 
five dollars to be spent as the assembly saw fit. The president then said 
that the check would be added to the offering to be presented at the 
evening service ; said offering to go to the Presiding Bishop's fund for 
World Relief. 

The president recognized three former presidents of the Auxiliary: 
Miss Emma Hall, Mrs. W. J. Gordan, Mrs. W. S. Holmes. 

Mrs. Peoples spoke of the opportunity and joy we had in store for 
the afternoon session in hearing Dr. D. A. McGregor, Executive Secretary 
of the National Council's Division of Christian Education. 

The meeting wished to send greetings and thanks to Mrs. Spruill and

REPORTS OF 
OFFICERS 



28 Sixty-Second Annual, Report 

REPORT OF UNITED THANK OFFERING CUSTODIAN 

1943 

The first words of my report are very familiar to all of you:— 
"It is said that the United Thank Offering: started because of the divine 
discontent of one young church woman. That woman, Mrs. Richard H. 
Soule, was called upon to help count the offering of 500 delegates at the 
18S6 Triennial in Chicago. It amounted to $82.71." Mrs. Soule was amazed 
to find it so small. In a spirited letter to the church papers, Mrs. Soule 
set forth the vital financial needs of our women missionaries, sueeested that 
the offering be made an annual one, and that the objects to be aided by the 
offering be selected and made known before the time of the next meetine 
in 1889. From then on through her long life she traveled and spoke and 
worked and gave for the offering. That young church woman, Mrs. Richard 
H. Soule was 95 years old on February 17th of this year. On her birthday 
she received congratulatory letters from churchmen and friends in many 
lands. A month later on March 21st she died in her home on Beacon 
Street in Boston. 

"May eternal light shine upon her." 

That first United Offering in 1889 amounted to a little over $2000.00. 
In 1943 the last United Thank Offering taken in Cleveland was $1,119,878.91. 
Of this sum the women of the Church in the Diocese of North Carolina 
gave $25,350.00. Of this $9. 145.05 was gathered in during the year 1943. 

Mrs. Soule's first thought was of an offering, but later it was decided to 
call it a United Offering, and in 1919 in recognition of its true character 
as a thank offering a resolution was passed making the title "The United 
Thank Offering of the Women of the Church." Notice that, — not women 
of the Auxiliary, but women of the Church." And so it stands todav an 
offering from every woman of our Church, expressing to God thankfulness 
for his gifts. Through the years has come the knowledge that, like the 
quality of mercy "It is twice blest; it blesseth him that give> and him that 
takes." It blesses the giver for "Nothing carries us into the presence of 
God more swiftly than the lifting power of a heart overflowing with 
thanksgiving." It blesses him who takes, and you may find just who is to 
be blessed by this last offering by readins: the budget which you may get 
from 281. As you know we share now in the support of all women mis- 
sionaries and also in their appointment. 

Then it seems to me it must be a blessins to those who have the 
privilege of spending this large sum. From the last report of the meeting 
of the National Executive Board I take this: — 

United Thank Offering: The following grants were voted: — 

Deaconess Peppers, travel and typewriter to enable her to continue 
her work amonsr the relocated Japanese — $150.00. 

Miss Beauchamp, Arizona, travel — $100.00. 

To repair Horner Hall, Appalachian School, Penland. N. C— $400.00. 

Then followed others. Because vou were thankful and gave, the 
National Board found it possible to make these grants. 

At the same meeting it was decided to chance the size and qualitv 
(and I hone the color) of the United Thank Offering boxes when the 



The Woman's Auxiliary 29 

material on hand has been used, and also to change the theme on the box 
to "Let us give thanks unto our Lord God" 

Tomorrow morning we will place on the altar, here, our first of the 
six offerings which will go to the Triennial when it meets in San Francisco 
in 1946. God grant the whole be used to help rebuild a world at peace. 
Mary Weldon Lewis, Diocesan Custodian 

REPORT OF CHAIRMAN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

It has been my privilege to serve as your Educational Secretary during 
a year that has held many challenges to those seeking to know more about 
the life that our Lord came to give. We have been confronted by destruc- 
tion and death in all corners of the earth and yet we look for life as we 
seek to increase His Kingdom, for we have His promises. We realize the 
need for knowledge and guidance as never before. 

Christian Education has been defined as the process by which a soul 
develops in appreciation of the things of Christ. It must be the underlying 
principle of all our work done in His Name. It is the keystone in the 
arch, without which our building falls apart. 

In this first year of a new Triennium, we took for our keynote God's 
Gift and Oar Task. Yea, we, in convention assembled, accepted our task, 
of letting ourselves be used to bring in fully God's Gift of His Kingdom. 
To this end our thoughts were directed as we tried to interpret our task, 
For All of Life, in our Mission Study. We endeavored to find our ob- 
ligation to this nation of diverse peoples We Who Are America. As con- 
trasted with the conception of man as merely an integer in the mass, we 
tried to understand The Christian Doctrine of Man. Since we know our- 
selves to be children of God, we have tried to learn how to pray to Our 
Father in Heaven. And, since our citizenship is also of this world, we 
we have studied This Created World from the standpoint of a Christian 
teacher. 

Through your reports, I learn that you have done a good year's work 
but there are still not a great many Bible classes and there are too few 
Parish Councils. Leaders are being developed and, right here, let me 
recommend A Guide for the Self Training of Leaders of Women's Work, 
procurable from "281." 

One district Educational Secretary mapped out a fine course of reading 
for her members. Another one conducted an institute during Lent. The 
Auxiliaries in one parish felt enough concern about Christian post-war 
planning to let their Congressman know how they stood on the subject. 
Several branches reported having done their mission study in union with 
other churches. This is most desirable. 

I am going to say something about money; and, lest I seem to en- 
croach on the treasurer's grounds, let me call attention to a resolution 
passed at the Triennial Meeting. It concerns Proportionate Giving and 
is to the effect that "a study of it be incorporated into the program for 
this triennium." So it dees belong in this department. 

We must find what the Bible teaches and then see how we measure 
up to the standards. Read and ponder the Offertory Sentences. One 
from the book, Tobit, charges, "If thou hast much, give plenteously; if 



30 Sixty-Second Annual, Report 

little do thy diligence gladly to give of that little." In Deuteronomy 16:17 
we read, "Every man shall give as he is able according to the blessing 
of the Lord thy God which He hath given thee." St. Paul admonishes us: 
"Upon the first day of the week, let everyone of you lay by him in store, 
as God hath prospered him." These all enjoin orderly, systematic giving 
of our means. Some prefer to make a "separated portion" of their goods 
unto the Lord. Others accept the tithe as a minimum of giving, enlarged 
by "offerings." To these, the prophet Malachi puts these words into the 
mouth of the messenger of the Lord, "Bring all the tithes into the store- 
house . . . and prove me ... if I will not open you the windows of heaven 
and pour you out a blessing that there shall not be room enough to re- 
ceive it." 

I would refer you to Women at Work, one of the Forward in Service 
pamphlets, in which there is discussed Women and the Use of Money. 

As we enter the second year of this Triennium, let us consider God's 
Gift of the Holy Spirit and determine our Task to be to let Him so illumine 
our lives that we may be the light of the world in our generation. Let 
us walk in the Light, as He is in the light, and so have fellowship one 
with another until, through World Evangelism, we have World Fellowship 
in Christ. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Caro A. Holmes 

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 
CHAIRMAN 

The reports of the Christian Social Relations Chairmen for 1943 were 
excellent. A black and white record on Christian Social relations in any 
parish is difficult to compile, but from the facts given we can be very proud 
of the work that is being done in this department. However the beginning 
of a new year is a good time to take stock and I should like for each 
Chairman of Christian Social Relations in every parish to consider this 
question . . . What can this parish do to meet more effectively the religious 
and social needs of our community? 

Creation of public opinion on the side of right social action is pre- 
eminently a task for Church people. If we are not willing to iniatiate 
reforms out of Christian motives we cannot blame others for failing to do 
so. We must at all times be aware of the necessity to extend our present 
program, supplement the activities of other groups and develop new acti- 
vities. We must lend strength to all the agencies of the Church which are 
laboring for the happiness arid welfare of all people, that they may find 
in our Master their salvation and peace. 

The improvements for which we are all striving will only come about 
as we truly accept and faithfully act on the doctrine of the brotherhood 
of all men in our Lord. 

I am sure that every parish in the diocese is doing something in the 
field of Christian Social Relations, but I am equally sure that none of u<= 
are doing all that we can do. If fact there is so much to be done that 
now as never before it is necessary to study, think clearly and see straight — 



The Woman's Auxiliary 31 

then act — remembering that action based on knowledge is the final test 
of our sincerety as Christians. 

Conditions of the social world will change when we as church people 
and Christians do something about it. 

May we strive to hear the call to harder thinking, broader vision, 
deeper consecration and greater sacrifice for the common good — over-riding 
our minor distinctions of race, nationality and economic class, and thru 
our efforts to aid in establishing a new order wherein the nations of the 
world may live together in trust and fellowship, in justice and peace.

REPORT OF SUPPLY DEPARTMENT CHAIRMAN 

I want to begin my report quoting from a paragraph in the Supply 
Manual: "No matter how carefully assignments are carried out and 
reports made, something very important will have been missed if each 
assignment is not made the means of increasing the knowledge and interest 
of the women who participate in it." Unquote. 

Recently, Miss Stabler our National Supply Secretary, prepared a 
Supply Manual, which contains all the information and instructions re- 
garding the duties of the Supply Secretary, thisi Manual is just what we 
have needed. One was sent to each District Chairman and also one to each 
Branch Secretary. These are to be handed down to each new Secretary. 

Last fall checks were sent to our Personals. One to Mrs. Robert 
Z. Johnston, widow, whose husband was Priest in charge, St. Cyprian's 
Church, St. Augustine, Fla. The other personal check was sent to Rev. 
Frank H. Davenport, White Bear Lake, Minn. Very appreciative letters 
were received from both of these. 

Our two mission allotments this year are St. Matthews' Mission 
Penuelas, Puerto Rico. The Missionary Bishop of Puerto Rico, recom- 
mended providing for the needs of this mission by sending money. A 
check was sent to the National Treasurer and forwarded to Rev. Victor 



32 Sixty-Second Annual Report 

Rivera, who is in charge of this mission. Our other allotment is the Rose- 
bud Indian Mission, South Dakota, Rev. Paul H. Barbour in charge. My 
contact with Mrs. Barbour, who does all the writing, has been very pleas- 
ant. This allotment has been completed, sending ready made garments 
and a few being made by four Auxiliary Branches. We did not do very 
much sewing this year as material was very scarce. The few garments 
which were made were so large that they did not look as if they were for 
human beings. Mrs. Barbour writes, "the younger girls are reducing 
so they say. Fashion has struck them." When I first read this allotment 
and saw the request for IS blankets, I did not know where I was going 
to secure these. One member of St. Philip's Church, Durham, wrote to 
a friend of his who is in the blanket manufacturing business, he sent us 
one dozen of practically new blankets in bright colors which always appeal 
to Indians. Then from the help of several Auxiliaries the eighteen were 
soon ready to be sent to South Dakota. We are certainly very grateful 
for this gift. 

A number of boxes of second hand clothing have been sent to Rosebud 
Mission, and also to Miss Lillie Hill, and( other missions in the State. 

All branches have had their annual program meetings. Each branch 
planned their program and I understand that they were very interesting 
and I think they enjoyed doing the planning. Miss Lillie Hill was a big 
help to us, she told of her work at several of these meetings, also showing 
pictures. 

Up to date sixty branches have paid their pledges. After paying for 
all garments bought, some material, postage, freight, two Personal Checks 
one allotment check, we have on hand $585.29. Everything cost more this 
year. 

I, again, want to thank each one for their help and cooperation which 
they have given me these two years. Be ready next fall to begin with 
the same energy and interest

REPORTS OF CHAIRMEN OF 
SPECIAL COMMITTEES 



46 Slxty-Secoxd Annual Report 

REPORT OF THE DIOCESAN DIRECTOR OF THE 

CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

There can be no statistical report of the Church Periodical Club this 
year owing to the very small number of branches reporting. No money 
has been reported sent, nor have I received any, let us not forget the 
Library Fund so important at this time, also the Mary E. Thomas En- 
dowment Fund. From this you will note that my report to our Pro- 
vincial Secretary was not very encouraging. 

My predecessor bequeathed to me the privilege of, Quote, "awakening 
a Diocesan wide interest in this all important work, ever more so now. 
because of the large number in our Army Camps, hospitals for wounded 
soldiers, not forgetful of the isolated homes of families of soldiers where 
loneliness prevails and where some book or periodical, "Daily Light", for 
instance can add hope and cheer. Cross word puzzles, short stories cut 
from newspapers and made into booklets, greeting cards, victrola records, 
musical instruments of any and all kinds. Having been at the receiving 
end of the Club for many years I feel I can speak authoritatively, for all 
these things have blessed many to whom I have ministered. Many blind 
people in institutions have been Messed with books in Braille donated by 
the Church Periodical Club. Last but not least, let's be careful that there are 
no idle Bibles in our homes. Because "men's hearts are failing them 
for fear," and there are more demands for Bibles than ever before, let us 
not deny them the Bread of Life when it is in our power to share it. 
As is everything else so with the Parish Secretaries, they are only a number 
now, so if you haven't received your number, will you not notify me? It 
was my privilege to attend the Triennial Meeting of the Church Periodical 
Club in Cleveland last fall when our National Officers were elected. Be- 
cause of the crowded condition of "281" the C. P. C. office is now located 
at 61 Gramercy Park N., New York City. Truly the Church Periodical 
Club is one of God's great gifts and ours is the privilege to see this task 
well done ! 

Respectfully submitted, 

Lillie H. Hill, Diocesan Director in the 
Diocese of North Carolina. 

REPORT OF THE MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

For the past year this department has conformed to the nation-wide 
policy by which each diocese assumes responsibility in personal ways for 
the missionaries from the diocese. Its aim is to inspire understanding and 
love of the missionary work of the church by methods that appeal most 
to the average person. 

Two newsletters have been sent to each District Correspondent and to 
the missionaries themselves, and news of our missionaries has been published 
in "The North Carolina Churchman." Each district has assumed the re- 
sponsibility of sending a Christmas gift to each of our diocesan fellow- 
workers at home and abroad. 

An increasing number of letters from both domestic and foreign fields 
show a real appreciation of the interest being shown in the workers. Es- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 47 

pecially do they seem to enjoy receiving newsletters about their fellow- 
workers. 

It is gratifying to note that some vacancies in the mission field have 
been filled since the last report of this department. The needs, however 
are still great. While it is impossible to send workers to the Far East at 
present, when the war is over the need for young women who might be 
interested in such service will be greater than ever. In the medical field 
there is always room for women doctors, nurses, and laboratory techni- 
cians. Teachers are needed for everything from kindergarten to college 
work. Perhaps the greatest need is for young women with teaching ability 
for religious work among women and children — "evangelistic workers". 
Parish correspondents should keep these needs before their branches and 
be ready to help potential volunteers with information obtainable from 
Church Missions House. Only through knowledge of these needs and 
through prayer can we hope to have a share in bringing recruits and lend 
our support to them. 

Let us continue steadfast in our prayers for those who are now working 
and for those who, because of the war, are "ambassadors in bonds", for 

"Away in foreign fields they wondered how 

Their simple word had power — 

At home the Christians two or three had met 

To pray an hour. 

Yes, we are always wondering, wondering how ! 

Because we do not see 

Someone — perhaps unknown and far away — ■ 

On bended knee." 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT OF LEGISLATIVE CHAIRMAN 
APRIL 1943 1944 

Since the State of North Carolina holds its Legislative Session bian- 
nually, next year — 1945 — will be the first opportunity for the functioning 
of your legislative committee of the Woman's Auxiliary. We, the commit- 
tee, wish to approach that important time of the making of new 1 laws, and 
improvement of old, — with all the force of our fine body of Episcopal 
women solidly behind any movement for the betterment of the underpri- 
vileged, of those sick mentally and morally, and of the Youths of our 
State ! 

To render aid of real value, you should be prepared to raise your voices 
to the men of that Legislature coming from your own home towns. You 
should acquaint yourself with the real need's of North Carolina and possible 
proposals to rectify these. Public sentiment is a weight that cannot be 
ignored and this sentiment can be swayed by your own quiet persistence 
in your) beliefs and hopes for better conditions in North Carolina. 

Last year you passed a resolution to return to the State Legislative 
Council of Women's Organizations — after seeing the worthwhile causes 
for which they had successfully worked in 1943. Dr. Ellen Winston, their 



48 Sixty-Second Annual, Report 

fine leader, recently succeeded in office by Mrs. O. F. McCrary, expressed 
keen appreciation of this return saying that the Women of the Auxiliary 
could be of great help in promoting the Council's legislative Program in 
1945. 

The Program as approved by the executive committee — is now sent 
for the approval of the 14 organizations constituting the Council. I have 
condensed this Program for your convenience and here present these pro- 
posed Items and the reasons behind their presentation by the Council as 
proposed objectives. 

Item I. Raise the compulsory school attendance age from 14 to 16 
years and provide for its enforcement through the State Department of 
Public Instruction. 

Because — All other states, with the exception of Georgia, Louisiana and 
Virginia set the age limit for compulsory school attendance at 16 years 
or more. Under the Child Labor Law in N. C. a child cannot work until 
16, and yet he is allowed to leave school at 14. That gap causes illiteracy; 
truancy and juvenile delinquency. 

Item II. Provide for improved public library service through further 
increase in State Aid for Public Libraries. 

Because — we have far too few libraries — one half million North Caro- 
linians do not have any library service available. Also we have far too 
few books in our libraries. National public library expenditure is forty- 
two cents per capita — we in North Carolina spend seventeen cents per 
capita ! 

Item III. Provide expanded facilities for the care and treatment of 
feeble-minded children of both races. 

Because— There are approximately 2,700 mentally defective white child- 
ren and Caswell Training School, our only institution for their care, is 
equipped for only 800! There is no training school at all for the 800 
mentally defective Negro children. Such feeble-minded children are a 
problem to their homes and their communities. Instead of being allowed 
to become delinquent and even criminal, they might — if properly trained 
in childhood — even be able to earn their own livelihood! 

Item IV. Make adequate provisions for modernizing the jail system 
and for bringing it up to minimum approved standards. 

Because — At least 68 of all the county jails in North Carolina fail to 
meet the minimum standards set by the State Board of Health, State 
Board of Charities and Public Welfare, and Fire Marshal — in sanitation, 
feeding of inmates, segregation of the races and sexes, medical treatment, 
and protection from fire hazards. Yet these jails continue to house over 
five thousand white and colored women a year! 

Item V. Provide for clinics for the control of cancer, with these clinics 
either to be set up under the State Board of Health or to be fitted into the 
program that will be worked out under the new commission appointed by 
the Governor. 

Because — Cancer ranks second as a cause of death in North Carolina 
— and all time high in 1943 of 2,317 deaths from cancer in our State! There 
is at present no state wide program for the control of this disease and only 
one approved cancer clinic, Greensboro. It is a well-known medical fact 
that early diagnosis and treatment of cancer is the patients best chance 



The Woman's Auxiliary 49 



of cure. Clinics would save many women and men from this dread 
disease. 

Item VI. Provide for a full-time supervisor of narcotic education in 
the State Department of Public Instruction. 

Because — The most effective approach to. the control of narcotics i? 
through public education, to make more effective a full-time super- 
visor is needed. 

Item VII. Obtain a State Minimum Wage Law. 

Because — The need for such a floor for low-paid workers is generally 
recognized. Thirty-four states already have minimum wage laws. 

We, the Legislative Committee, composed of myself Chairman, Mrs. 
Irving Hall of Raleigh, Mrs. V. K. Hart of Charlotte, and Mrs. E. G. 
Peoples — would like to ask your approval of any or all of these items 
We would like to be able to pledge your support next year to this program 
of the Legislative Council. So will you please make some motion to this' 
effect? 

I would suggest that each auxiliary parish president either act with us 
herself, when necessary to stir up "our men folks" to interest in putting 
these measures before legislators — or appoint some carefully chosen woman 
of charm and sincerity whose influence would carry weight with outstand- 
ing men of her community. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Cantey Venable Sutton, Chairman 

STATE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

TENTATIVE LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM, 1945 

This program was approved by the Executive Board and the Annual 
Convention of the Woman's Auxiliary in the Diocese of North Carolina. 
(See Minutes of Annual Meeting, Page 23.) 

The following legislative program was adopted by the membership of 
the State Legislative Council and approved by the Executive Committee 
for submission to the 14 organizations constituting the Council. The pro- 
gram includes seven items. Reasons for including each item are specified. 
Some of the items will require new legislation, introduced either by the 
Council directly or by another agency with the support of the Council. 
Others do not require legislation but involve increased appropriations. Final 
action on the legislative program for which the Council will work during 
the 1945 General Assembly will be taken at the regular Council meeting 
in the autumn. The final 1945 program will include those items from the 
seven submitted here which are indorsed by all of the member organiza- 
tions. 

Item I. Raise the compulsory school attendance age from 14 to 16 
years and provide for its enforcement through the State Department of 
Public Instruction. 

Because: 

A. North Carolina is the only state except Georgia and Louisiana having 
14 years as the maximum for compulsory school attendance. With 
the exception of Virginia, which has 15 years, all other states set 
the age limit at 16 years or more. 



50 Sixty-Second Annual Report 

B. A child cannot work under the State Child Labor Law until he is 
16 years of age without a special permit. This leaves a two-year 
gap between school and job. 

C. Truancy ig a major cause of juvenile delinquency, and the rate of 
juvenile delinquency among 14 and IS year old children is alarmingly 
high. 

D. North Carolina does not want to continue to produce illiterates. 
According to the 1940 census, 27,000 children in North Carolina. 
7 to 13 years of age, inclusive, were not attending school. 

Item II. Provide for improved public library service through further 
increase in State Aid for Public Libraries. 

Because: 

A. Almost half a million North Carolinians are without public library 
service. Another million people have very limited service. 

B. The public libraries of North Carolina contain only one-third of a 
book per person. The standard set by the American Library Asso- 
ciation is two books per person or six times the number of books in 
our public libraries. 

C. The national average for public library expenditure is 42 cents per 
capita. In North Carolina in 1942-43, the expenditure was only 17 
cents per capita. 

Item III. Provide expanded facilities for the care and treatment of 
feebleminded children of both races. 

Because: 

A. There are approximately 2,700 mentally defective white children and 
800 mentally defective Negro children in North Carolina who need 
institutional care. 

B. Caswell Training School, our single institution for the mentally 
defective, is only equipped to care for 800 white children or less 
than one-third of the total needing care. There is no training school 
for mentally defective Negro children. 

C. Mentally defective children, left at large, are serious problems in 
their own homes and communities. They increase the number of 
juvenile delinquents. 

D. Many of the mentally defective children, both white and Negro : 
can be trained to earn a livelihood for themselves if given the proper 
training in childhood. 

Item IV. Make adequate provisions for modernizing the jail system and 
for bringing it up to minimum approved standards. 
Because: 

A. Many of our jails fail to meet the minimum standards set by the 
State Board of Health, State Board of Charities and Public Welfare, 
and Fire Marshal in sanitation, feeding of inmates, segregation of 
the races and sexes, medical treatment, and protection from fire 
hazards. 

B. Of the 100 county jails in North Carolina, only 18 are on the ap- 
proved list of the Federal Bureau of Prisons. An additional 14 are 



The Woman's Auxiliary - SI 

on the list for restricted use only. Yet, our 68 jails condemned by the 
Federal authorities continue to house North Carolina's prisoners. 

C. The wide variation in commitments indicates lack of standardization 
in jail procedure. In 1940, some counties committed no white wom- 
en to jail. In contrast one county committed 9 out of every 1,000 
white women 15 years of age and over to jail in the one year. By 
counties the rates of commitment in 1940 for Negro women ranged 
from 1.5 per 1,000 to 47.7 per 1,000. 

D. During 1940, an estimated 2,760 white women and 3,870 Negro wom- 
en were committed to jail in North Carolina at least once; yet no 
provision is made for rehabilitative treatment. 

Item V. Provide for clinics for the control of cancer with these clinics 
either to be set up under the State Board of Health/ or to be fitted into the 
program that will be worked out under the new commission appointed by 
the Governor. 

Because: 

A. Cancer ranks second as a cause of death in North Carolina. In 1943 
there were 2,317 deaths from cancer alone, the highest number of 
cancer deaths on record. 

B. Cancer is particularly serious as a cause of illness and death among 
women. 

C. North Carolina has no state-wide program for the control of this 
disease and in fact has only one cancer clinic approved by the 
American College of Surgeons, namely at Greensboro. 

D. Early diagnosis and treatment of cancer are recognized by the medi- 
cal profession as a cancer patient's best chance for a cure of the 
disease. 

Item VI. Provide for a full-timd supervisor of narcotics education in the 
State Department of Public Instruction. 
Because: 

A. The most effective approach to the control of narcotics is through 
public education. 

B. To make more effective the present instruction in the public schools 
a full-time State supervisor is essential. 

Item VII. Obtain a State Minimum Wage Law. 
Because: 

A. The need for a floor under wages is generally recognized. Thirty- 
four States already have minimum wage laws. 

B. Employees of most manufacturing establishments and transportation 
companies are covered by the Federal law. Employees of mercantile 
establishments and service industries are entitled to the same protec- 
tion through a State law. 

C. The law is not designated to raise wages. Its purpose is to main- 
tain the present wage level for the lowest-paid workers. 



52 Sixty- Second Annual Report 

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FINDINGS 
AND COURTESY 

We find much to encourage us in this, the 62nd Annual Meeting of the 
Woman's Auxiliary. In spite of wartime difficulties, it has been well 
attended. The three new branches reported signify growth ; and the action 
taken to increase our budget for 194S from $7,400.00 to $8,000.00 also indi- 
cates a definite forward step. It was a satisfaction to know that the 
Treasury showed a balance of over $1,100.00, after all obligations had been 
met and that part of these funds could be voted to special purposes. We 
are deeply grateful that the United Thank Offering Spring Ingathering 
shows an increase of about $1,000.00 over last year. 

Our keynote "God's Gift and Our Task", an echo of the Triennial 
Meeting, has been sounded in many tones; and over and over has recurred 
the thought thatl "the Christian world must proceed from world evangelism 
to world fellowship in Christ." 

Our President, Mrs. E. G. Peoples, in her message set before us high 
standards and noble aims. Reminding us of our responsibility as delegates 
to the Convention where inspiration will be so freely given us, she cautioned 
us to "look to our responses." She emphasized the thought that our 
"volunteer service in every field may reflect our Christian conviction, our 
faith in the invincible Christ whom hatreds of the world could not, and 
cannot defeat." 

Mrs. W. S. Holmes, Chairman of the Department of Christian Educa- 
tion, stressed the need for letting Christ, the 1 Light of the world, so illumi- 
nate our lives that we may be the light of the world in our generation. 

Reporting on Christian Social Relations, Mrs. V. K. Hart gave us this 
fine thought: "that action based upon knowledge is the final test of our 
sincerity as Christians." 

Mrs. W. R. Kuker, of the Supply Department, emphasized that "some- 
thing very important will have been missed, if each assignment is not made 
the means of increasing the knowledge and interest of the women who- par- 
ticipate in it." 

Mrs. R. H. Lewis, as United Thank Offering Custodian, reminded us 
that it is "a Thank Offering from the Women of the Church", and not from 
Auxiliary members only. 

Miss Constance Young presented the work of the Negro district which 
was full of encouragement and stressed the increase of work in the nineteen 
branches. She urged us to "accept our task." 

Miss Anne Groff of Shanghai, China, who recently returned to the 
United States aboard the Gripsholm, gave us a most interesting resume of 
conditions in Shanghai from 1937 to 1941. The most encouraging thought 
is that Christianity has brought to the Chinese people a spiritual freedom. 
The influence of the Christians in China is out of all proportion to their 
numbers. 

Dr. D. A. McGregor, Executive Secretary of the National Council's 
Division of Christian Education, showed us clearly that education is a fine 
art. He portrayed the position of a woman in the home as analogous 
to woman's position in the "family of God, the household of faith." 
Reliability, love, encouragement, good housekeeping, weaving the pattern 



The Woman's Auxiliary S3 

of family life and broadening men's minds," are the qualities and duties 
we must project into the family life of the Church. 

At the evening service Dr. McGregor vividly described the Kingdom 
of God flowing as a stream full of "warmth, drive and direction," stemming 
from Christ. This is His gift to us; and our task is, first to recognize 
the "difference between the life of the Kingdom and the life of the world," 
second, "to give our faith and allegiance to God, and third, "to be 
thankful." 

We wish to express the gratitude of the Assembly to the Rev. James 
S. Cox of St. Paul's Church, to all the ladies of the various committee? 
in this Church, who so efficiently managed the many details of the Con- 
vention, including the two delicious meals in the Parish House and the 
beautiful arrangement of flowers throughout the Church and Parish 
House, to the officers and choir of the Church, to our many hostesses for 
their cordial and gracious hospitality. We return to our home parishes 
feeling that it was good to have been here, and filled with renewed en- 
thusiasm and zeal for our work for the Master. 
Respectfully submitted,

DISTRICT REPORTS 



56 Sixty- Second Annual Report 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

The District of Edgecombe held only one meeting during 1943; that 
was held at St. John's, Battleboro, on October 22nd with a splendid 
attendance. Gratifying reports from the Department chairmen were given. 
The noon-day prayers were led by Mrs. E. G. Peoples, after which she 
gave a most interesting account of the recent General Convention held in 
Cleveland. 

Mrs. John F. Heard was the guest speaker of the day and 1 she presented 
the missionary program of the National Church in a moving and graphic 
way. 

The Rev. Ray Holder, member of the Diocesan Department of Pro- 
motion, spoke in behalf of that part of our Diocesan budget to be used for 
Missionary work. 

One District Executive Board Meeting was held in November with 
all members present. The board discussed at length the need for increasing 
our work with the young people and some of the branches have already 
begun to carry out definite programs with the young people. 

The Christian Educational Department has shown growth in the num- 
ber of study classes that have been held in the District. Every branch re- 
ported from one to three study classes held, with increased interest and 
participation. 

Our United Thank Offering for the fall and spring amounted to 
S1857.ll, a substantial increase over the previous year, evidencing our 
thanks for God's gifts to us day by day. 

Nearly every branch reported an increase in interest among the women 

and were more liberal giving for carrying on the work in the several 

departments of the Auxiliary. From the branch reports, I feel our District 

has grown in service and strengthened spiritually. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Nellie H. Gregory, Chm. Dist. of Edgecombe 

REPORT OF DISTRICT OF FORSYTH ROWAN 

The annual meeting of Forsyth-Rowan District of the Woman's 
Auxiliary to the National Council was held at Saint Paul's Church, Winston- 
Salem on October 26, 1943. There were twelve branches represented, with 
a large attendance of one hundred and twenty membese. Excellent 
reports were given. The Rev. James S. Cox, Rector of St. Paul's and 
Chairman of the Department of Promotion spoke forcefully of the Church's 
program of Christian Education in the Diocese. 

Of outstanding value to the meeting was the address by Mrs. John F. 
Heard of Atlanta, former Diocesan President of the Diocese of Atlanta, and 
now a member of the National Executive Board. She chose as her sub- 
ject, "The Christian Offensive and Missionary Advance." 

Also present was Mrs. E. G. Peoples, President of the Woman's Auxi- 
liary in our Diocese who told of interesting events of the Triennial which 
recently met in Cleveland. 

The offering received was sent to the daughter of Bishop Robin Chen, 
to be used for educational purposes. 
Respectfully submitted, 
Sarah Rawlings Jewett, Chm. Dist. of Forsyth-Roivan 



The Woman's Auxiliary 57 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The Rev. Ray Holder of Wadesboro, Mrs. John F. Heard of Atlanta, 
member of the Executive Board of Episcopal women, and Mrs. E. G. 
Peoples of Oxford, newly elected president of the Woman's Auxiliary of 
North Carolina, were the speakers at the Granville District Meeting held 
in the Church of the Good Shepherd, Ridgeway, Thursday, October 
21, 1943. 

Reviewing 'Missionary Opportunities Now Confronting the Church' 
Mrs. Heard said that the fastest growing diocese in the world is 
in India where the prerequisites for church membership include training 
and active participation in church work. 

Mrs. Peoples urged that November 11, World Community Day of 
Prayer, be observed by every- auxiliary member of the district. In re- 
porting the recent meeting of the General Convention in Cleveand, Mrs. 
Peoples pointed out that unity of fellowship was emphasized by the fact 
that the secretary to the presiding officer of the Triennial was a Japanese 
girl, charming and efficient. Also that for the first time a negro layman 
spoke before the General Convention. The district appreciates the honor 
of having first claim on Mrs. Peoples. 

The Rev. Ray Holder, representative from the Diocesan Department 
of Promotion, brought us an instructive message on the Church's Program. 
It was good news to the whole district to learn that he had accepted a 
call to Holy Innocents, Henderson. 

We also welcomed to our district the Rev. and Mrs. Cobey of St. 
Paul's Louisburg. 

Reports made by branch presidents showed that work of real value 
was being done, not only along accustomed channels, but also in meeting 
the needs of the present day crisis. 

Reports of district Secretaries showed cooperation among the branches. 
Mrs. J. H. Brodie paid tribute to the late Rev. Isaac Wayne Hughes, 
rector of the Church of Holy Innocents, Henderson, for thirty four years, 
and to his service to the district, in impressive^ words of appreciation. 

Sixty-six people were present at the meeting. Luncheon was served 
by the Ridgeway branch. 

Henderson extended an invitation to the district for the 1944 meeting. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Susant Webb Adams, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

The one meeting of the year of the District of Guilford was held in 
St. Andrew's, Greensboro, October 27, 1943, with twelve of the thirteen 
branches being represented. 

In the absence of Mrs. Harvey Cox, who had moved from the district, 
Mrs. Wm. J. Gordon, presided. 

Attending the meeting was our Diocesan President Mrs. E. G. Peoples 
who brought a message which she felt was most vital from the 
Triennial. 

Mrs. J. S. Heard, from the National Church, sent as a messenger, 
made an address on the field of missions. 



58 Sixty-Second Annual Report 

A most inspiring meditation was made by Miss Janet Robinson, a 
teacher of the Bible in the schools of Charlotte. Her talk was made up 
of quotations from the teachings of our Lord, and it was felt that she was 
well fitted to bring to children the beauty and wisdom of the teachings of 
the Bible. 

The district wished to pay tribute at this time to Mrs. M. N. Shaw, 
of Leaksville, who had served as secretary of the district for six conse- 
cutive years. Through her efforts, the minutes and programs have been 
collected and preserved. Following is the quotation of her foreword: 

"This effort to preserve the minutes of the past 
meetings is by no means a perfect work. 

It is my earnest hope that, in some small way, it may 
serve to the glory of God and the advancement of His 
Kingdom. 

If I may be allowed a dedication, it is dedicated to 
your Chairman for the past three years, Anne Smith 
Easley, in token of her never-failing courtesy and con- 
sideration, and the joy I have had in serving with her. 

For those who shall succeed me in this office, I beg 
of you that you will ever keep in mind that it is an 
humble and yet an honorable one and that you will bring 
to it all that you possess of consecration and efficiency." 

Bertha K. Swart, Chairman 
REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

The district of Mecklenburg held its Spring meeting at Saint Peters, 
Charlotte, May 19th, 1943. A most inspiring missionary program was 
given. 

The Fall meeting was held at Saint Martins, Charlotte, October 28th, 
1943. Mrs. E. G. Peoples, Diocesan President gave a wonderful report

The Missionary Program of the Church. 

Our projects for the Diocese Program were given by Rev. Ray Holder 
of Wadesboro, N. C.

represented. 

A motion was made and carried that we give the offering for the day

education. 

We were so glad to welcome the auxiliary of Christ Church, Charlotte 
as a new member of Mecklenburg District.

REPORT OF THE NEGRO DISTRICT 

Another year passed! We ask ourselves, "Watchman What of the 
Night"? How have we used our time for the upbuilding of His kingdom — 
for the saving of precious souls who need God's care? This question may 
rightly be asked every Auxiliary woman. Let us seek the right answer. 

Our reports are encouraging, even more so than for last year. We 
felt we had a good showing at Raleigh's "Annual Meeting" and were 
happy. Nineteen (19) present — the largest number from our group ever, 
we understood. St. Ambrose's Branch was magnanimous in her share of the 
responsibility for our comfort. Our prayer is that those in attendance 
here, will gain so much in spiritual growth they'll return and inspire their 
sisters — yes, the whole congregation — to greater heights in their work. 

The| "Fall District Meeting" held in "Cheshire Building" at St. Augus- 
tine's, was well attended altho' traveling difficulties had increased. St. 
Augustine's Branch again the gracious hostess. We were delighted to welcome 
our new President — Mrs. E. G. Peoples; — she gave us a thrilling account 
of the Triennial: 

Our Interracial Chairman — Miss Emma Hall, and our Bishop always 
bring added help and inspiration. The Bishop's address gave great en- 
couragement ! 

We had the fellowship and an address by Miss Mary Burwell, a 
leading missionary of the Baptist Church. 

The chairman has tried to keep in constant touch with all of our nine- 
teen (19) branches. Have visited a few places. Even Tarboro seems to 
show life — being represented at District Meeting — and Statesville has had 
a spokesman — these places, we understand, had not been heard from for 
sometime. 

I wish there was time for full reports from some of our smaller 
missions, especially Rocky Mount, Wilson and Henderson. They and 
others report opportunities being used for much spiritual growth. The 
Bible and Prayer Book studies — reading "Forth", "Pointers" and other 
leading Church papers; "Women in the Life of the Church" and "This 
Created World" — recommended by our Presiding Bishop — are favorites. 
Intercessory days and the Corporate Communions have been held, in 
reverence. 

The Diocesan Treasurer's report shows the "Central Fund" payments 
more than doubled over last year. More branches were diligent in getting 
their pledge obligations paid and several say they'll be disappointed if they 
haven't made the "Honor Roll." 

The U. T. O. seems to be growing splendidly. Reports from some 
"Spring Offerings" are very gratifying. More interest is shown in "Box 
Work." The "Grace Chen Fund" was not wholly overlooked. We've been 
fortunate to get Miss Jessie Diggs, Durham, as C. P. C. Secretary. Regret 
to report our Secretary of "Christian Social Relations" has found it necessary 
to resign. The Chairman wishes to commend the loyal cooperation of the 
good women and to express her appreciation for the same. 

What a fast flyer is time ! It's importance cannot be measured— 
hence, we must be "up and doing". We cannot slacken in our efforts for 
long or more will be lost than can ever be regained. 



60 Sixty-Second Annual, Report 

May I urge every Christian person to heed the call — "Accept our 
Task" ! Then, the love we pine for — "goodwill to all men", and the 
help we need for doing God's work will surely be ours. 
Respectfully submitted, 

Constance S. Young, Chairman of 
Negro District 

REPORT OF DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

The District of Orange held its fall meeting at St. Joseph's Church in 
Durham, on October 25, 1943. The meeting was very well attended, nine 
of the eleven branches being represented. The reports from the different 
branches, and from the District Secretaries showed a lively interest in the 
Auxiliary Work. 

This being the meeting following the Triennial, we were particularly 
fortunate in having direct reports from representatives who had attended 
the General Convention in Cleveland. 

Mrs. Heard of Atlanta, member of the National Council, brought us a 
message from the National Council. She emphasized the fact that we are 
auxiliary to the National Council, and that we must reaffirm that name 
and role. With facts and figures, she gave a graphic and comprehensive 
report of conditions and needs, at home and all over the world. 

This was followed by a report from the General Convention by Rev. 
David Yates. He summed up the important matters acted upon by the 
two Houses, and stressed the Missionary Challenge, which was emphasized 
throughout the meeting. If the church is to go forward we must be more 
active in works as well as faith. 

Our third address was made by our Diocesan President Mrs. E. G. 
Peoples. She spoke of the many evidences that we are going forward as 
shown by our acceptance of the three points of Bishop Tuckers offensive: 

1. A growing understanding between the races. 

2. An awakening to the needs of the world. 

3. A growing desire to minister to the needs of the world. 
During luncheon, the Rev. Ray Holder spoke on the Church's Program. 
Our offering amounted to $33.68. After expenses were deducted, we 

sent $5.00 to Miss Betty Gordon of Spray, as a Christmas gift and $25.00 
to Miss Chen's Scholarship Fund, at Gin Ling College, China. 

Mrs. R. J. M. Hobbs, Chairman 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

Since the last meeting of our District, Hamlet, October 1943, Auxiliary 
matters have been much as usual except that we have felt the influence, 
more perhaps than they realize, of the visits of our leaders, Mrs. Heard and 
Mrs. Peoples. I believe that, very largely on account of these visits, each 
of our Branches has shown increased zeal and increased good results. 
"Preparing for Peace," the world's second need, maybe, at this time, surely 
we can do no better than to go about our Master's business, as each day 
comes, a little more promptly, more cheerfully, more without grudging, and 
in certain confidence of His Almighty Guidance. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 61 

For all those of our dear ones in the Armed Services of our Country, 
let us aim to be better church members; better neighbors; better friends; 
striving to broaden our sympathies as we do our best to guard and guide 
our own households, and to answer the question and pray the prayer, 
"Master, who is my Neighbor?" "May I never fail him." 
Respectfully submitted, 

Mary Little Rice. Chairman 

REPORT OF DISTRICT OF WAKE 

The annual meeting of the District of Wake was held at Christ 
Church, Raleigh, October 16, 1943. 

The communion service was celebrated by the Rt. Rev. Edwin A. 
Penick, assisted by the Rev. John A. Wright, the Rev. Charles F. Wulf, 
the Rev. James McDowell Dick and the Rev. Carl Herman. 

There! was an unusually good attendance, with all nine branches being 
represented; every one of which showed continued! fine, progressive work. 

Greetings and response were made by Mrs. Edwin A. Penick of Christ 
Church and Mrs. Elmer Beech of the Lucy Pittinger Branch of the Church 
of the Good Shepherd. 

Mrs. E. G. Peoples of Oxford, newly elected President of the Woman's 
Auxiliary, the Rev. Ray Holder of Wadesboro, Mrs. J. F. Heard of At- 
lanta, member of the National executive board of the Episcopal Church, 
and the Rt. Rev. Edwin A. Penick were guest speakers. 

Their talks were full of inspiration and challenge to the women to a 
better understanding and love of the missionary work of the church and a 
more zealous desire to continue faithfully their support and efforts. 

The United Thank Offering showed an increase of $71.19 over last 
year. 

The offering, exclusive of the five dollars sent for a Christmas gift 
to the diocesan missionary family, was given for student work at State 
College. 

The various branches agreed to take more interest in the furtherance 
of the work among the students at State College. 

The following officers were elected: 

Vice Chairman Mrs. Joseph B. Cheshire 

Missionary correspondent Mrs. S. F. Hoschour 

Supply secretary Mrs. J. H. Cheatham 

United Thank Offering custodian ^_ Mrs. E. H. Bost 

Again, may I say that I have been happy to be the leader for the 
District of Wake and I want to thank you every one for the help and 
cooperation given me. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. I. M. Bailey Chairman

EXAMPLE OF A PARISH RESPONSE 

LETTER FROM PITTSBORO 

Pittsboro, N. C, June 28, 1944 

Dear Mrs. Peoples: 

Thank you very much for your interesting letter which was read at our 
regular meeting. 

Mrs. Peoples, in regard to the work of our Auxiliary in the past year 
to which you referred to in your letter, we did have a plan which we 
have tried to carry out, (plan of action). We encourage Christian Edu- 
cation. During Lent we bad a Religious Book Reading Contest. Twenty 
books were read, including The Presiding Bishops Book for Lent, The 
Lord's Prayer (Book) and the outline of The Lords Prayer, also many 
very interesting books. The oldest member in the Auxiliary read the 
largest number of books, and she was presented a book, title, The Choice 
Before Us, by Dr. Stanley Jones, World Famous Missionary. During Lent 
we studied The Silent Billions Speak. An all day meeting was held at 
the home of one of our members, with a picnic lunch served at the 
noon hour. 

Several of our members are unable to attend the meetings regularly, 
but we keep in touch with each one, they are always notified when and 
where each meeting will be held, and they are interested and cooperate in 
any way possible. Our auxiliary members ha\ T e a widening range of 
interest in people and their welfare, near and far. Mrs. Peoples we 
ordered all the Triennial Material, as you suggested in your monthly 
letters, and the following were read and discussed at our regular meetings 
each month. The report of the Triennial, and Report of Continuation 
Committee included: 

God's Gift and Our Task. 
We Accept Our Task. 
Gifts of the Spirit. 

Several members will continue the reading of Books during the summer 
months. 

We have the new map, Women Share in the Whole Life of the Church. 

I have sent in my subscription for the new paper, Churchways, which 
will make its first appearance in September. 

With best wishes from each member of our Auxiliary, for a happy 
summer. 

Very sincerely, 
Mattie G. Riddle

Dear Mrs. Bouligny: 

It affords me an immense amount of satisfaction to receive from you this 
morning check for $450, being the semi-annual payment by the Woman's

ceiving this remittance is not only due to the fact that it enables me to meet 
immediately a number of need^ in the diocese, but also to the more signifi- 
cant fact that my work is being substantially reinforced by the devoted 
women of this diocese. 



With kind regards, I am 



Sincerely yours,

say, 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as Diocesan 
Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally received and admit- 
ted into their respective offices in your presence, and that we should ask 
the blessing of God upon them for their support* and guidance in the per- 
formance of the duties which you have laid upon them.

further us with thy continual help; that in all our works begun, continued 
and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy Name, and finally, by thy 
mercy, obtain everlasting life : Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give thy Grace, we humbly be- 
seech thee, to these thy servants who have been chosen to serve thee in the 
special work for which they have been selected; Grant untoi them zeal and 
earnestness in the performance of their office; wisdom and strength to

and the benefit of thy holy Church ! Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 
Bless us O God, with the vision of thy Being and thy Beauty, that in 
the strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; Through 
Jesus Christ our Lord.

ful, zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the Grace of

PRAYERS IN TIME OF WAR 

OFFICIAL WAR TIME PRAYER FOR THIS DIOCESE 

GOD of our fathers, who hast raised up this nation for a glorious mission, 
and hast sent Thy Church to leaven the world, deepen in us and all who 
call themselves Christians, a sense of our opportunity in this time of war. 
as witnesses to Thee; help us the more faithfully to consider; Thy will and 
share Thy spirit and follow Thy way. Bless our leaders with vision and 
strength in upholding the cause of human liberty. Shield from every evil 
the men who serve in the Army and Navy, the Marine and Air Corps 
and other posts of duty. Animate the minds of the people with the 
unifying spirit of true patriotism. Make us grateful stewards of Thy 
unmerited bounty to the relief of those in need. And, above all, so en- 
lighten and quicken Thy servants that we may, in union with all men of 
good will, be fit instruments to Thy glory, increasing the righteousness 
which alone exalteth a nation, and hastening Thy kingdom ; through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. — Amen. 

FOR THE WAR-BEREAVED 

Almighty God, who didst offer thine only Son to be made perfect 
through suffering, and to win -our salvation by enduring the cross; Sustain 
with thy healing power all those whose loved ones have given their lives 
in the service of our country. Redeem, we pray thee, the pain of their 
bereavement, that knowing their loss to be the price of our freedom, they 
may remember the gratitude of the nation for which they gave so costly 
a sacrifice. And grant, O Lord, that we may highly resolve that these 
dead shall not have died in vain, and that out of the agony of the present 
hour there may arise a new and better world in which thy will shall rule : 
to the honor of thy Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

FOR PRISONERS OF WAR 

Lord Almighty, Father of mercies, Friend of all who are comfortless 
and forlorn; We remember before Thee all prisoners of war. Be so* present 
to them that in the weariness of their imprisonment they may find 
spiritual freedom in Thee, being released from fears and oppression of 
heart, from bitterness of hope deferred. Lead them thus onward in 
divine knowledge in their school of trial, and in Thy mercy speed the day 



110 Sixty-Second Annual Report 

of righteous peace and of their glad deliverance. All this we humbly ask 
in the name of Him who gave Himself for our eternal freedom, Thy dear 
Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR OUR ENEMIES 

O Lord Jesus Christ, draw us into Thine own spirit toward enemies, 
that we may regard them still as men and not as demons. Though we 
must oppose their mad designs to the death, let us never descend to hate 
or cruelty but fight on confident in the victory Thou shalt win, mindful 
of the humanity and need of forgiveness in which both friend and foe 
alike stand. Have mercy upon us all, we ask in Thy Holy Name. Amen. 

THANKS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN FAITHFUL TO DEATH 

Father, 

We thank thee for the spirit which conquers death, 

For all those who have gone gladly to certain destruction for some great 

cause. 
For all those who, facing clearly the consequences, 
Have chosen, not the way of safety, but thd way of danger: and so died. 

We thank thee for all those who, of their own will, 
Have given their lives for their duty, 
Winning thereby an eternal reward. 

We thank thee for all those who, fearing naught but dishonour, 

Have counted their life a very little thing, 

A thing to be adventured jestingly, so that duty be done. 

Give unto us also this spirit, O Father, 

That we may be worthy of those who are gone — 

That to us too duty may be everything and life an irrelevance. 

FOR THE NATION 

Creator and Ruler of mankind, 

We pray thee this! day for our country, 

That her new life may be established and built up in thyself, 

That all hatred and malice, 

All indifference to the sufferings of others, 

All narrow exclusiveness and selfish greed, 

May be swept away by the breath of thy spirit: 

And that public-spirit, honour and justice, 

Co-operation in service, self-sacrifice for the good of the whole people, 

May flourish abundantly amongst us. 

We pray thee also for ourselves, 

That thou wilt forge us into tools meet for the service of our country: 

Burn from us all selfishness and pride: 

Purify us from all baseness: 

Fill us with thy divine passion 



The Woman's Auxiliary 111 



To uplift the weak, 

To sweep away oppression and wrong, 

To give to every man, even to the lowest and most degraded, 

The opportunity of a full life 

That may be lived to thy glory and to the service of mankind. 

FOR UNITY 

God of all nations, 

We beseech thee to bring that day nearer 

When our country shall be truly one, 

When every barrier shall be broken down, 

When no man shall work for his own selfish good. 

When no man shall defraud or oppress his neighbour. 

When no man shall reckon his neighbour worse than himself, 

When none shall be despised or outcast, 

But all shall be free to work in equal manhood for thee and their country. 

From J. S. Hoyland, A Book of Prayers Written for Use in an Indian College.

more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, we beseech

Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, the sick and homeless,

PRAYER FOR RURAL WORK 

Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, Whose flocks are upon 
a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts the hopes of a better country; 
bless all who search for Thy sheep in scattered places that they may

ever one God, world witout end. Amen. 

FOR RELIGIOUS EDUCATION

Lord. Amen. 

FOR SOCIAL SERVICE 

Guide us, Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, and in 
Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, making the 
Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest. Who dost live

that holy land. Amen. 

THE FORWARD MOVEMENT 

We pray Thee, O God, for Thy Blessing upon the Forward Movement of 
Thy Church. Use it, we beseech Thee, to open our eyes to the needs 
of men for the Gospel of Christ, and to the opportunities that lie before the 
Church to extend His Kingdom. Stir up, O Lord, the wills of all Thy

spirit. Let not our purpose slack, but let the kingdoms of this world be- 
come the Kingdom of our God and of Hia Christ. Amen.

of the nations the things which belong to their true peace ; that they may 
rise with a single voice to forgive past wrong, to repent present bitterness, 
and to remember only their unity in thee and thy kingdom of love, who 
livest with the Father and the Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. 
Amen. 

FOR THE KINGDOM OF GOD 

O master of the hearts of men, who art the Light of every man that com- 
eth into the world, send forth the women messengers of Thy church to en- 
lighten all men everywhere with a knowledge of their sonship and their 
place in Thy Kingdom. Strengthen and sustain Thy witness bearers in 
every land. Deepen in us the consciousness of the unity of our race, 
made of one blood, possessing one life, and having one need. Qsicken our 
hearts to respond to this need. Make us Thy instruments in redeeming the 
world and in drawing all men unto Thee. We ask this in Thy name, O 
Christ our Saviour and Redeemer, Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy 
Spirit, rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in His Name. 
May He give us light to guide us, courage to support us, and love to 
unite us, now and for evermore. Amen,

PRAYER FOR THE SUCCESS OF THIS ENTERPRISE 

Suggested for use at all regular services and privately 

Almighty and everlasting God, who hast promised through thy 
Son, Jesus Christ, to be with Thy Church to the end of the world, 
we humbly beseech Thee to prosper this undertaking of the people 
in the Reconstruction and Advance Campaign for the good of Thy 
Church and for the advancement of Thy Kingdom. 

Strengthen us, we beseech Thee, Lord, with the Holy Ghost, 
the Comforter, and daily increase in us Thy manifold gifts of 
grace. Enlarge our faith, enlighten our understanding, and fill 
us with a hearty desire to do Thy will. 

Especially we beseech Thee to give wisdom to those who are called 
to lead us, and to all Thy people a ready will to work together with 
love and zeal. 

And grant that all we may do, may be so ordered by Thy gov- 
ernance that Thy blessing may rest upon our endeavors, to the 
glory of Thy Holy Name: through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

Adapted from a prayer written in 1919 by the late 
Rt. Rev. Arthur Selden Lloyd 




THE PASTORAL STAFF 

The fiftieth anniversary of Bishop Lyman's ordination to the 
Priesthood was observed by a special service in the Church of the 
Good Shepherd, Raleigh, on December 19, 1891. The principal spea- 
ker on this occasion was the Rev. Matthias M. Marshall, D. D., the 
rector of Christ Church, Raleigh, and also President of the Standing 
Committee. At the end of his address, he presented to Bishop Ly- 
man a Crozier or Pastoral Staff as an emblem of the authority of 
the Episcopal office, and also as a token of appreciation for Bishop 
Lyman's eighteen years of service in this Diocese. Dr. Marshall, 
referring to this gift of the clergy and laity of North Carolina said : 
"We would have it bear witness, after some sort, of our gratitude 
to God for the zeal and fidelity and abundant labors, in season and 
out of season, for the spiritual welfare of all the flock over which 
the Holy Ghost hath made you overseer that so conspicuously char- 
acterized all the years of your ministry in our midst." 

This Staff is now the property of the Diocese and is used by the 
Bishop on special occasions of ceremony. The ebony shaft is sur- 
mounted by a silver shepherd's crook that is richly carved with 
Christian symbols. At the top of the shaft is a round ball adorned 



4 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

with the Greek letters for Christ. It could signify the sufficiency 
of Christ for the whole world and reminds us of the words of St. 
John : "God so loved the world that he gave His only begotten Son." 
Above the world is a hexagon on four panels of which are the sym- 
bols of the Gospel, a Winged Man for St. Matthew, a Lion for St. 
Mark, an Ox for St. Luke and an Eagle for St. John, suggesting 
the superiority or dominance of the Word of God above all thought. 
The other two panels are (1) the Lamb of God, reminding us of 
the sacrifice of Christ for man's redemption, and (2) the Seal of 
the Diocese of North Carolina which might stand for the church. 
At the top, above all, is the Shepherd's Crook which represents the 
Divine Motive of the Incarnation, that is, the love of God, and His 
merciful care for each member of his flock, for "we are His people, 
and the sheep of His pasture." 

In brief, the staff is God's protection, the point prods us towards 
our duty, the crook restrains us from evil, the world for Christ 
gives us vision, the Four Gospels furnish light, the Church is His 
family, His sacrifice redeems us, His overarching, sheltering Love is 
our life. These are some of the simple truths that are pictorially 
suggested by the Pastoral Staff of the Diocese of North Carolina. 

Edwin A. Penick.

ORGANIZATION OF THE CHURCH 

THE GENERAL CONVENTION— The governing body of the 
Protestant Episcopal Church in the U. S. A., consists of The House 
of Bishops and The House of Clerical and Lay Deputies. It meets 
every three years. The next meeting will be held in Philadelphia, 
Pa., in 1946. 

THE NATIONAL COUNCIL— This is an executive, not a gov- 
erning body. It carries on the work of the Church, according to 
the plans and policies of the General Convention. The president 
of the National Council is also the Presiding Bishop of the Church, 
the Right Reverend Henry St. George Tucker, D.D. There are 
twenty-eight elected members. It meets quarterly every year. A 
staff of salaried executives work under National Council direction 
at THE CHURCH MISSIONS HOUSE, 281 Fourth Avenue, New 
York 10, N. Y. 

THERE ARE FOUR DEPARTMENTS OF THE CHURCH'S 
WORK— OVERSEAS— HOME— FINANCE— PROMOTION. The 
Home Department has five divisions — Domestic Missions, Chris- 
tian Social Relations, Christian Education, College and Youth Work 
and Negro Work. 

NATIONAL HEADQUARTERS— THE CHURCH MISSIONS 
HOUSE, 281 FOURTH AVENUE, NEW YORK. This is the 
home of the National Council and The Woman's Auxiliary. There 
is a Book Store in The Church Missions House where all recom- 
mended study material may be bought. There is also the National 
Council Lending Library from which many books may be borrowed.

The Woman's Auxiliary 35 

REPORT OF THE PRESIDENT 

OF THE 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY, DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

The past year has been a time in which we've had to make many 
adjustments, both in our personal lives, and in the life of the Wom- 
an's Auxiliary. Some of these adjustments are a challenge to our 
ingenuity and cause us to find new ways of doing things, and not 
infrequently help us to realize what things are really important. 
Thus in adjusting our plans this year to the office of Defense Trans- 
portation ruling on Conventions, we've had to plan a different kind 
of meeting, and in selecting the key-note we've tried to emphasize 
what seems most important to the life of the Auxiliary — "Workers, 
together with Him." Let us resolve, then, to make up for our loss 
by good hard work, working with our great Ally. 

We have tried during the past year to do what we could to pro- 
mote both International and Interracial Understanding. Toward 
the former, many Auxiliaries have had study groups on the Dum- 
barton Oaks Conference, and we have communicated our interest to 
our U. S. Senator, the Hon. J. W. Bailey, and been assured that 
he is in favor of "this country joining in with other important na- 
tions in measures to preserve her peace." The next paragraph in 
Senator Bailey's letter seems to me somewhat contradictory and I 
am quoting it for your consideration, so that you may let him know 
what you think. "I am not in favor of merging this country into 

anything like a World Government I shall study all of the 

propositions with a view to the end above mentioned."* We also must 
continue to study and pray earnestly for the United Nations Con- 
ference to be held in San Francisco April 25, 1945. 

Through our participation in the State Legislative Council we 
have had an active part in such social legislation as was passed in 
the recent legislature of our state. Dr. Ellen Winston, state super- 
intendent of Public Welfare, reminded us that what was ac- 
complished was only a step in the right direction, and further gains 
would require the cooperative effort of every woman. Study the 
full report of the Legislative Council in the new Year Book. It 
will tell in detail what was accomplished and give suggestions for 
our next move. The Council is anxious to have each member or 
organization send in suggestions for social legislation in which it 
is particularly interested. 

We have also had study groups on Interracial Understanding, 
have given a scholarship to St. Augustine's, and had a special of- 
fering to contribute to the purchase of a permanent camp-site for 
negroes. 

Soon after our meeting last spring, I attended the Forward in 
Service Planning Conference held at the Church of the Advent, Bir- 
mingham, Alabama. The Conference for Diocesan Leaders here in 
Wilson is patterned after this meeting, men and women leaders of 
all diocesan departments planning together. 

Since we were unable to hold our conference at Vade Mecum 
last summer on account of the "Polio" epidemic, we used our fall 
District Meetings as combined District Meetings and Educational 
Institutes. A team of five people, made up of the Rev. George 
Henry, chairman of the Diocesan Department of Promotion; Miss 
Venetia Cox, missionary from China; Mrs. W. S. Holmes, chair- 



36 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

man of Christian Education for the Auxiliary; Mrs. U. T. Holmes, 
a former president and your president, toured the diocese attending 
each of the six meetings held. 

At two of the Rural Institutes, conducted by the Rev. C. E. B. 
Robinson, I taught classes for women on the Fellowship of the 
Prayer Book. In October I attended the meeting of the Provincial 
Synod of the Fourth Province held at Christ Church, Nashville, 
Tenn. I conducted one Woman's Auxiliary Institute and visited a 
good many Auxiliaries. 

For two years I have been your president, and now I feel pre- 
pared to make certain observations ; Auxiliary women are active on 
the home front and doing their part in the Red Cross, War Bond 
drives, Clothing drives, and all such agencies, and coming more 
and more to realize that all Christian social relations are definitely 
a part of their duty as Church women. I believe we are beginning 
to understand something of what is meant by sacrificial living. As 
far as numbers are concerned, we are not growing very fast, if 
at all. In 1943, we had reported 3343 members. That year we lost 
34 by death, leaving 3309. In 1944, we had 3339 reported, which 
means that we gained 30 members. But in 1944 we lost 30 by 
death. This year our Roll of Remembrance contains 43 names. 
We have only one new branch reported and I doubt very much if 
it has that many members. With more than a hundred branches, 
it seems that if we were more convincing witnesses, our growth 
would be more rapid. As you know, we increased our budget this 
year by $600.00 and our Treasurer tells me that it looks as if we're 
going to meet it all right. 

For some time we've felt that our report blanks needed revision, 
and that has been done. We hope you'll make every effort to answer 
them intelligently, and send them to the person for whom they are 
intended. A great many of you stated on this year's reports that 
your greatest need was leadership. The meeting in Wilson is our 
first attempt to do something about this need. Here we hope to 
inform your leaders of the Plan of Action for next year and send 
them back to you full of enthusiasm for its execution. Our pro- 
gram at Vade Mecum offers the most adequate answer to the prob- 
lem of training for leadership. 

As we begin to consider next year's Forward in Service empha- 
sis — The Christian Fellowship; The Missionary Imperative — let 
us think again and again of some of the imperatives of Jesus: 

"I must be about my Father's business." 

"Other sheep I have that are not of this fold. Them also I must 
bring." 

"I must work the works of Him that sent me, while it is day." 

Leah Graves Peoples. 

* Since this was written Senator Bailey has announced his inten- 
tion of supporting the United Nations Charter unreservedly. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 37 

MINUTES OF THE CONFERENCE FOR DIOCESAN LEADERS 
ST. TIMOTHY'S CHURCH, WILSON, N. C, APRIL 10-11, 1945 

The Executive Board of the Woman's Auxiliary of the diocese 
of North Carolina, the Executive Council, heads of departments and 
representatives of diocesan objectives met in St. Timothy's Church, 
Wilson, on April 10 and 11. 

The session opened at noon on the 10th with the Bishop having 
prayers and a meditation on the subject "What It Means To Be a 
Worker With Him." To illustrate his address on this subject, the 
Bishop selected the story of Moses and the burning bush. He said 
that the fact that the bush though burning was not consumed il- 
lustrated the fact that no one working for God is ever exhausted 
. . . Leaders are not those with extraordinary qualifications and 
talents but just ordinary folks; an ordinary person with an extra- 
ordinary sense of God in his life is the person to be chosen as a 
leader. It was from lowly walks of life that the Apostles were 
called. 

The first qualification is the reverent spirit. 

The second, an intelligent grasp of responsibility — or situations. 

Third, self distrust — a real humility. 

What we need is an educational program on social affairs . . . God 
talks to us in the terms of our own experience. 

The meeting adjourned for luncheon which was served in the 
beautiful parish house by the ladies of St. Timothy's branch. 

The Executive Board met in the church from 2 to 4. At this 
meeting the report of the nominating committee for diocesan of- 
ficers was received. 

At 4 o'clock Diocesan Objectives were presented to the board. 

Mrs. Whisnant in her report of the Thompson Orphanage told 
us of Christmas among her eighty-five children ; about the wedding 
of an eighteen year old girl there, and also about Easter. 

Miss Adelaide Winslow in her usual pleasing manner told us 
about life at St. Mary's. 

Miss Margaret Fletcher of St. Mary's House, Greensboro, made 
us feel that the work among the students there was one of the 
very worthwhile objectives of the diocese. 

Vade Mecum was ably presented by the Rev. Robt. Turner, Jr. 
The Rev. Mr. Smyth who is business manager expressed his hope 
to make it the best camp in the south. 

A letter from the Rev. I. H. Hughes expressed his sorrow at not 
being able to be present. 

At 8 P. M. there was an evening service in the church; at which 
time Dr. Lewis B. Franklin, Treasurer of the National Council, 
was the speaker. His subject was "Missions as an Aid to the Chris- 
tian Fellowship." It was a most inspiring message and the large 
congregation went to their homes with food for thought and action. 
He spoke of having visited islands of the south Pacific where he 
noted the great difference in the faces of those who had accepted the 
Christian way of life. A layman whose face shines with "the 
knowledge and love of God" made all who had the privilege of 
hearing him resolve to make their individual work for the Master 
of more account. 

After the evening service an informal reception was held in the 
parish house in order that all might greet Dr. Franklin. It was 



38 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

Mrs. Peoples' wish that such a reception might be held in order 
that the members of the Executive Board and also members of the 
Executive Council might get better acquainted; she was not dis- 
appointed. 

On Wednesday morning at 7:30, Holy Communion was cele- 
brated by Bishop Penick and breakfast followed in the parish 
house. The United Thank Offering was presented at the service 
and amounted to $3502.57. The Roll of Remembrance was also read 
showing that forty-seven members of the Auxiliary had entered 
into life eternal during the past year. 

At 9 o'clock the business session opened. 

The President called attention to the Kanuga booklets. 

She expressed her appreciation of the work done by the com- 
mittee on suggestions for improving the Year Book and said that 
she especially approved the adoption of specific objectives for the 
year and a standard of achievement. Mrs. Huddle, as chairman of 
this committee, had presented its findings at the meeting of the 
Executive Board. 

Mrs. Clarkson moved that the meeting express its appreciation 
of the work done in this matter; seconded by Mrs. Holmes; carried. 

There was considerable discussion regarding Russian Kits and 
Mrs. Hart of Charlotte generously said that she would see it 
through. 

Letters from the North Carolina Council of Churches were read 
and Bishop Penick spoke of his interest therein, quoting Dr. Cun- 
ningham as having said that it presented the power of Protestant 
opinion. He said we were apt to feel that we did not amount to 
much in large and public affairs; that Protestant Public opinion was 
responsible for Dumbarton Oaks. 

Mrs. Clarkson moved that a resolution be adopted — 

RESOLVED; that as an Executive Board to the Diocese of North 
Carolina we endorse the Dumbarton Oaks conference as the basis 
for a permanent peace. 

She also moved that copies be sent to our Senators, Representa- 
tives from North Carolina and the State Department in Washing- 
ton; seconded by Mrs. Hairston; carried. 

In regard to this same subject, Miss Hall said that we must not 
forget that "prayer is our secret weapon" and that in this way our 
influence would be great. 

The president expressed her wish that on the opening day of the 
conference in San Francisco, April 25th, every church remain open 
all day for intercessory prayer. 

The Rev. Ray Holder, Chairman of Forward in Service, was to 
have been the leader in a joint conference at 9:30 but a telegram 
from him on Tuesday night said he would be unable to attend be- 
cause of the illness of Mrs. Holder. 

The president said that this meeting was patterned after the 
one held in Birmingham, Alabama, last May — planning Forward 
in Service programs. The heads of all national departments were 
in attendance at that conference. That our department heads had 
been asked to this session in order that we might plan to co-operate 
in what they wish done. The Plan of Action is the program of the 
Church and the more we can plan it together, the more we shall 
accomplish. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 39 

Reports of the District Chairmen were received. 

The United Thank Offering Custodian, Mrs. Hairston, reported 
as follows: 

Spring offering — so far $ 3502.57 

Spring offering last year 5826.93 

Fall offering last year 6193.49 

Interest to Dec. 31, 1944 78.34 

Toward the next triennial $15601.33 

Mrs. Hairston stated that this was not complete. 

Speaking of the Legislative Council, the president said it had 
been a great privilege to serve on this council. They feel that 
their work has been in the right direction and well worth while. Dr. 
Ellen Winston said it was a "socially-minded Legislature." The 
report of the needs of the people in the diocese will come to us so 
we must be ready for it and see what our job will be from now on. 

Mrs. Bouligny reported that the auditors of the financial re- 
ports for last year made no charge for their work. 

The president asked for the report of the nominating commit- 
tee for Provincial representative on the National Executive Board. 
Mrs. Holmes submitted only one name — that of Mrs. Francis Clark- 
son of Charlotte; nomination seconded by Mrs. Hart; carried. 

The Bishop said it would help if it was made known that the 
Executive Board this year is the voice of the Diocese. 

The next business was the Conference for Diocesan leaders. 

A Preview of the Plan of Action was given by the Bishop. 

Subject: The Missionary Imperative. 

It is a call to all of us to become God's missionaries near at hand 
and throughout the world. 

Objectives for 1944-45 

Approved last fall at the clergy conference; issued from the 
conference at Birmingham, Alabama. 

1. Financial. 

a. Full acceptance of the quota of the National council for 
45-46. 

b. Creation of a reasonable reserve; we should be prepared 
for economic strain after the war is over. 

c. Adoption of a salary standard; especially in regard to the 
negro clergy. 

2. Buildings. 

In 45-46 we hope to see a building at St. Paul's, Thomasville 
and St. James', Kannapolis, and a parish house at St. 
Stephen's, Winston-Salem (for negroes). 

3. The Chapel at Vade Mecum. It must be understood that it is 
not exclusively a project of the men of the diocese. 

4. Confirmation candidates. 

The Bishop said he had asked for 700 confirmation candidates 
for 1945; 800 for 1946. 

5. Young Peoples' organizations. 

a. For Negro and white congregations. 

b. Diocesan conference grounds for negroes. 



40 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

6. Diocesan college study conferences. 

7. Plans for returning service men under the department of 
Christian Social Relations. 

8. St. Michael's, Charlotte, to become a parish. 

It was announced that Mr. Cleveland Thayer, key man for the 
Laymen's group was unable to be present due to a conflicting meet- 
ing. His message to us was that "It is almost high-noon of oppor- 
tunity" and that he feels we have lost two years in the prepara- 
tion for our program for post-war plans. The laymen should 
work with the women for a great assembly like the Woman's Aux- 
iliary convention and the men meeting together so that the cor- 
porate mind may find expression. 

The Rev. Gray Temple spoke on Youth in the Plan of Action. He 
called attention to the change being made from the Y.P.S.L. to the 
Youth Department, which is organized and about ready to go into 
action. The program for Youth at Vade Mecum this year will be 
a "Work" program instead of a "Fun" program. Mr. Temple 
asked earnestly for the cooperation of the women of the Auxiliary. 
The Bishop said that one representative from the Auxiliary should 
be on the Youth Department staff; Mrs. Bourne was appointed to 
serve for the balance of the year in this capacity. 

Worship 

In discussing Women in the Plan, Mrs. Peoples recommended 
Extending the Fellowship of the Prayer Book as a text book. 

Reemphasize the Fellowship of Prayer. 

At Vade Mecum she is planning prayer groups in the cottages 
and hopes to place in each cottage a person who has had experi- 
ence in the practice of prayer. 

She also suggested an Office of Prayer for Missions, obtainable at 
"281" and said the Calendar of Prayer is also a great help. We 
should pray for people all over the world by name and thus create 
enthusiasm for the Imperative. She asked us to really study these 
things and try to know why we are church women. 

Study 

The Doctrine of the Incarnation is the subject of the course of 
study to be conducted by the Bishop at the Woman's Auxiliary 
conference at Vade Mecum. 

Also recommended for study — The Cross over Africa, by Newell 
S. Booth and 

These Moving Times, by Herman Moss. 

Dr. Eugene Pfaff, Executive Secretary of the Institute of Inter- 
national Relations, of Chapel Hill has been invited to come to Vade 
Mecum to discuss peace proposals. 

The president reminded us that Bishop and Mrs. Kroll are now 
in Asheville and said she expected to ask them to come to Vade 
Mecum also and tell us of their experiences in Africa. 

Service 

1. Giving ourselves to the winning of others. 

2. Giving ourselves in our work. 

3. In the world work of the church, we have a part. 

Here time for discussion by heads of departments was given. 
Mrs. Peoples said we must make up for the loss of reports of 
the delegates and asked that each district chairman in April or 



The Woman's Auxiliary 41 

May invite the presidents and Educational chairmen of every 
branch to meet with her and try to put over to them what has been 
done at this meeting and stressing what the Bishop said regarding 
leadership and also about Dr. Franklin's address. Try to stress the 
important things and not the trivial. We are learning now the 
value of first things! We must be Workers Together with Him; 
to study to show ourselves approved of God — workmen that need 
not be ashamed. She then read the Epistle for the week and said 
it summed up next year's program — The Christian Imperative. 

It was announced that the offering for the Presiding Bishop's 
Fund for World Relief, taken at the evening service, amounted to 
$50.31. 

After closing prayers by the Bishop, the meeting adjourned. 

Luncheon was again served in the parish house at which time 
Mrs. F. 0. Clarkson gave the report of the Courtesy committee. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Vera M. Cheatham, Secretary.

REPORT OF UNITED THANK OFFERING CUSTODIAN 

From a little pamphlet called "Spiritual Priorities" I quote: "Two 
unmistakable things this present crisis says to every one of us: 
First, self-sacrifice is the order of the day — no one has any right to 
avoid it; second, every great cause that calls for self-sacrifice is 
compelled in the end to translate that call into economic terms and 
say, 'This means money.' Certainly the nation says that, and can 
say that with compulsory enforcement. Willy-nilly, we must trans- 
late our patriotism into financial terms. But all through the na- 
tion are vital, voluntary institutions, indispensable to the welfare 
of the people, to the maintenance of a living democracy, the sus- 
tenance of our souls and the hope of the future, that cannot enforce 
financing but must rely on people like ourselves, who of their own 
free will put them among the priorities because they are personally 
convinced that they belong there." 

I feel that our United Thank Offering belongs among these "spirit- 
ual priorities," for the basic need of the world is spiritual and we 
give this offering towards the support of international Christianity. 

The offering for the Spring of 1944 $ 5,826.93 

Interest from Jan. 1, 1944 to June 30, '44 9.71 

Total $ 5,836.64 

The offering for the Fall of 1944 6,193.49 

Interest from July 1 to Dec. 31, 1944 68.63 

$12,098.76 
The offering for Spring of 1945 6,349.20 

$18,447.96 

"0 Praise the Lord, for it is a good thing to sing praises unto our 
God; yea, a joyful and pleasant thing it is to be thankful." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Elmer G. Hairston, 
Diocesan Custodian.

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION SECRETARY 

At its Annual Meeting in Winston- Salem, April 1944, the Execu- 
tive Board voted to request the Educational Secretary to prepare 
monthly programs for the Auxiliary column in The North Carolina 
Churchman; since so much of the material is not available at the 
time of the printing of the Year Book. I have therefore, sent sug- 
gestions for study to the paper each month, together with reading 
lists and references to available material. This seems to have been 
acceptable and I should like to continue doing it. 

At a meeting in Birmingham, we were pledged to conform our 
programs to the Plan of Action of The Forward-in-Service Com- 
mission. With these two guides and continuing with the theme of 
Worldwide Christian Fellowship, we had an abundance of ma- 
terial. At times, there has been almost too much to use profitably; 
but it is interesting how it all tied in together as we followed the 
Plan of Action and the Outline for Mission Study adopted by the 
Missionary Education Movement, adapted and edited by our lead- 
ers at "281." 

International and Interracial Understanding were made easier 
for us through Intercessory Prayer, so that when we came to study 
the American Indian and West of the Date Line, we went not as 
strangers, but as fellow members of the Household of Faith. 

It was not difficult to find in the Acts of the Apostles the same 
teaching. Our vision must have been broadened and our sympa- 
thies enlarged through our study. 

In order to make up, in some measure, for the lack of the Vade 
Mecum Conference, Mrs. Peoples arranged to have, on each pro- 
gram of the fall District Meetings the discussion of the Mission 
Study Books, led by Mrs. U. T. Holmes who was to have had this 
at Vade Mecum. She aroused much interest and I feel sure that 
the reports of interested study on the two subjects were due to the 
way in which she presented them. Almost every branch reported 
study of either the Indian or Southeast Asia and Southwest Pacific; 
some having had classes on both. 

Also, at the district meetings, time was given for the subject of 
Intercessory Prayer Groups to be discussed and it was my privilege 
to lead this, since I had had the benefit of instruction under Dr. 
Barth at Kanuga Conference. There were a few prayer groups re- 
ported to me. I had the joy of helping with some. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 51 

During the year, I have attended several Auxiliary meetings over 
the diocese presenting these subjects, viz.: The Fellowship of the 
Prayer Book, Christian Stewardship Today, The Christian Doctrine 
of God, Church in the Life of Women and the two Mission Books. 
I had part in one Rural Institute in Thomasville, conducted by 
Mr. C. E. B. Robinson. 

As an alternate delegate, I attended Provincial Synod in Christ 
Church, Nashville, Tenn. 

The greatest joy that I derived from my year's work was in the 
preparation of the study on The Acts of the Apostles, which was 
distributed at the district meetings. I had report of only one Aux- 
iliary's using it though I trust that others have, and that there will 
be others before we go into our Bible Study next year. I antici- 
pate much satisfaction in preparing the Life of St. Paul, as we 
continue, with the thought of God's Gift of Salvation and our Re- 
sponsibility, to Publish Glad Tidings. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Caro Adams Holmes. 

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

I want to begin my report to you with one definition of Christian 
Social Relations. "Christian Social Relations is first, love and dedi- 
cation of self to God, and then, love to our neighbor, which expresses 
itself in words and deeds of love and good will." 

From the seventy-seven Auxiliaries who sent in reports of the 
work done in 1944 it is gratifying to learn that our women are 
continuing to express their love and good will to our neighbors. 
Neighbors who live nearby as well as those living far from us. 

The activities listed ranged from assisting in the birth of a baby, 
doing the family laundry during a mother's illness to soliciting 
in Community and Red Cross Drives. 

That the work covered a very wide field is evidenced by the num- 
ber of agencies outside the parish, listed as channels through which 
our women have served. Of these agencies the Red Cross heads the 
list, followed by clubs for soldiers and work in hospitals. In many 
of our parishes today there is the opportunity for work in nearby 
camps and the reports show untiring service of all sorts for the men 
in the armed forces. 

Increased interest in interracial relations can be recorded for 
programs and discussion groups on this subject were reported. Help, 
both financial as well as gifts of food, clothing, books, and maga- 
zines were given to colored families, schools and churches. 

The Thompson Orphanage continues to be our important and 
most concrete project of the Christian Social Relations Depart- 
ment. The Auxiliaries gave money, gifts, clothing, furniture and 
soap wrappers last year, also contributions to the Building Fund. 

The following Diocesan and National objectives were supported 
last year: Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief, Chinese Re- 
lief, Collection of Clothing for War-Torn Europe, Leper Fund and 
Fund for education of Bishop Chien's daughter. 

In this department our reports cannot be as factual as in some 
others. However, the yearly report is not written primarily for the 
files but to be used as a yardstick. Where we have fallen short,. 



52 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

let us make a greater effort; where we have done good work, let us 
make it even better; where new work presents itself let us widen 
our field of service. 

In the coming year it is particularly important that every parish 
church and especially the Auxiliary women should be prepared to 
welcome all those returning from war service and to assist them 
in re-establishing themselves in their homes, their church and in the 
community. 

World Fellowship in Christ will exist when the true meaning of 
Christian Social Relations is demonstrated in our individual lives 
in our daily living. We are called Christians. Let us be worthy.

REPORT OF THE SUPPLY DEPARTMENT 

In the past we have been given the names of two clergymen, who 
have either retired from active service or whose salary was small. 
Checks were sent to these for their personal use. 

At the April meeting of the National Executive Board it was 
recommended that these checks be based on a standard amount de- 
pending on the composition of the family and be sent out by the 
National Supply Secretary from funds provided by the diocesan 
branches for the purpose. The amount allocated to your diocese 
is $150; of this one-fourth will be used for gifts supplementing sal- 
aries of active missionary priests and retired priests and those on 
pensions, and to active lay workers not affected by the Triennial 
resolution. This latter group includes the Indian catechists in 
South Dakota and a few other scattered lay employees. Our $150 
was paid in the fall of this year. 

At the meeting of the National Executive Board in October the 
following action was taken by the Board : Since it appears that the 
needs in the mission field are not likely to continue to absorb the 
entire production capacity represented by the supply work of the 
women of the church, we recommend to the diocesan executive 
boards that their supply secretaries in cooperation with other ap- 
propriate officers encourage women's groups in the parishes to in- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 53 

elude in their supply work the following fields, in addition to the 
missions provided for through the national assignment. 

1. Diocesan missions, institutions and agencies. 

2. Welfare agencies and institutions in local communities. 

3. War relief through such agencies as the American Red Cross, 
American Friend's Service Committee, the Russian, Greek, 
and other national war relief committees. 

This year the supply department has sent clothes to Red Cross, 
Russian and Greek Relief, also to the Thompson Orphanage. Boxes 
of many useful garments were sent to Miss Lillie Hill and Mrs. 
Sam Duncan, Cowan, Tennessee. 

Miss Stabler suggested that we send the few garments which we 
had on our supply shelves to Rev. Frank Thorburn, Pine Ridge 
Agency, S. D. We divided these and sent the children's garments 
to the Thompson Orphanage. 

One hundred and fifty dollars was sent to All Saints' Mission in 
Puerto Rico. 

One of our allotments was to the Shoshone Indian Mission School, 
Wind River, Wyoming. Requests were for children's clothes, in- 
fants' clothes, household articles and miscellaneous articles. Last 
fall $75 was sent for shoes. It has been impossible to obtain all the 
things asked for. We did manage to buy enough material to make 
seventy-three garments, made by different branches, more were 
willing to sew but we could not buy any more material. In the 
place of the garments we were unable to furnish, we sent a check 
for $150, hoping that they would have more luck in buying things. 

Our other allotment was to the John Moncure and Grace Church, 
Miller's Tavern, Va. Their requests were for household articles 
entirely, sheets, pillowcases, bedspreads, and blankets. All of these 
were sent with the exception of the blankets. We sent $100 for 
these. $15 was sent them last fall for hospital supplies. 

The financial report will follow. I am turning over a check for 
$842.96 to my successor. 

These three years have been most pleasant. We have been suc- 
cessful in completing all the allotments with the exception of a 
few articles this last year. Thanks so much to each Supply Secre- 
tary and also each Auxiliary member for their hearty cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Martha Cowan Kuker, 
Supply Secretary.

54 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

Branches who still feel like they want to make garments. This 
gives more of a personal touch to the work done for our Missions. 

Included in this $740.58 was a check for $75.00 for shoes for the 
children at the Wind River, Wyoming, Mission. A check for $15.00 
sent to the John Moncure School & Grace Church, Miller's Tavern, 
Va., for medicine. Although these two needs belong on our 1945 
allotment, they were needed at once. 

We have sent boxes of nice second-hand clothes to Miss Lillie 
Hill, Rosebud Indian Mission, Thompson Orphanage, National Re- 
lief Agencies, and Mrs. Sam Duncan, a Missionary of Cowan, 
Tenn. 

I am very grateful that we were able to send every garment which 
was asked for on our allotment. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Martha Cowan Kuker. 
Mrs. Kuker received the following from Miss Lillie Hill with the 
request that it be added to the report of the Supply Department. 

I wonder if you can incorporate in your report some of the things 
the Supply Department has done for our work through the Thrift 
Sale, and what it is continuing to do? 

In the first place the sale came into being in a most unusual way, 
and has continued unabated since its beginning because God is in 
it. I will mention some of the things it has done: with it we helped 
to paint both buildings at St. Andrew's together with some money 
from a layman; built the "Victory Hut" which was dedicated by 
Bishop Penick in 1943; also a double car shed; helped buy many 
things necessary for our conference center and last but not least 
we have put in a $1600 water system complete in each building. 
Now we are putting aside a nice sum so as to add Sunday School 
rooms to one of the most active Missions in the Diocese, St. Mary's- 
by-the-Highway. It has also helped in many ways as a discretion- 
ary fund, my first in my thirty-four years mission work. We are 
anxious to have members of the Woman's Auxiliary visit us at any 
time and see the work in action. 

Our grateful appreciation goes out to the women of the Auxil- 
iary who are making these things possible. 

Lillie Hill. 

REPORT OF THE DIOCESAN DIRECTOR OF THE 
CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

Never has the Church Periodical Club been confronted with so 
great a challenge and terrific responsibility as today. In the first 
place, in our own Diocese, the hospital at Camp Butner could keep 
every club in the Diocese busy. Aside from this our chaplains, at 
home and abroad, are needing helpful literature both secular and 
religious, for all types of personalities. The Bible is in greater 
demand than ever before in its history. 

Countless soldiers lying in hospitals needing diversion, besides 
reading matter, games, puzzles, victrola records, booklets made of 
jokes, short stories, etc., help to while away the time. 

Many clubs are functioning but too few send in reports with fig- 
ures telling the number of books, magazines and other things dis- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 55 

tributed. "My servant was busy here and there and he was gone." — 
I Kings 20:40. "Too late to classify." 

We still do not realize there are funds, not one branch C. P. C. 
Secretary has sent in a penny for any of these funds. Please read 
the literature sent you and notify me if there is any change in your 
Secretary. 

Personally, I am indeed grateful to all clubs who have made it 
possible for me to give, in my own field, greeting cards to all the 
prisoners in the county to be sent by them to their loved ones, at 
Christmas, Easter, Mother's Day and also birthdays as requests 
come. 

Let us acquaint ourselves with the most urgent needs about us, 
then let us work as though it all depends on what "I" do. "And 
my God shall supply all your need." — Phil. 4:19. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lillie H. Hill. 

REPORT OF MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

News letters from mission fields have been sent to District Corre- 
spondents as they come to me as well as a fine letter from Grace 
Chen thanking the Auxiliary for interest in her education. 

Statements explaining work in Alaska and Liberia were sent to 
District Correspondents and Parish correspondents when asked for, 
to assist in programs on mission work at Auxiliary meetings. A 
file of all information sent me is kept so that these requests may 
be met. 

Personal letters from workers express their appreciation for 
the steadfast support of their home Diocese and for small gifts 
sent at Christmas time. 

The need, still, is for more "laborers in the harvest." Mrs. Wil- 
liam Gordon has written the following challenge to us and has given 
me permission to quote from her letter : "If the Auxiliary had been 
able to have the Annual Meeting, I should have offered through 
your Department, a resolution asking the Auxiliary to make some 
definite plan for reaching the young people of this Diocese with the 
challenge of missionary service. In past years, we have had a 
noble list of missionaries ; today we have one priest and two wives 
active, beyond the limits of the United States. I pay tribute to the 
splendid work being done by the six women in the domestic field, 
and I should like to tell you of the expressions of appreciation of 
the work Inez Middleton is doing among the negroes in Arkansas, 
that I heard when I traveled in that diocese last fall. I am not un- 
mindful of the conditions in many of the "foreign" fields, but I am 
also mindful of the unparalleled opportunities which may be ours 
a few years hence. So, it seems to me that now, we should be em- 
phasizing in the Church Schools, in all our Youth work, at the 
Summer Camps and Conferences, the need of the healing Gospel of 
Jesus Christ. Not only efforts for humanitarian betterment, but 
the Kingship of our Lord Himself." 

Respectfully submitted, 

Helen W. Brown. 



56 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

REPORT OF LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

To Members of the State Legislative Council 

From: Eunice P. McCrary, President, 127 Brooks Avenue, Ra- 
leigh, N. C, 
and 
Leila S. Coltrane, Executive Secretary, 1611 Oberlin Road, Raleigh, 
N. C. 

We are enclosing a report of the achievements of the State Leg- 
islative Council in the 1945 General Assembly. You will note that 
while we did not get all we were asking for in the way of social 
legislation we did make some definite gains. Your cooperation 
helped to make this success possible and we are very grateful to 
you for your effective work. 

We are sending you also a list of the items suggested by the 
Council at its meeting on April 6 for consideration in making up 
the 1947 Legislative Program. Your organization is invited to sug- 
gest other items it would like to submit to the Council for inclu- 
sion in this list. Please let us know as soon as possible the action 
taken by your organization. 

The Council wishes to call to your particular attention the con- 
stitutional amendment (to be submitted to North Carolina voters 
in the next election) which will remove from the State Constitu- 
tion basic discriminations against women. That discriminations ex- 
ist was emphasized in the recent Supreme Court decision regard- 
ing jury service by women. 

This interim between meetings of the Legislature is a very im- 
portant period for us. We are counting on you to reach out to all 
of the branches of your organization with information on the vital 
issues on our program. If we can enlist the active interest and sup- 
port of the fifty thousand members of our organizations in the 
cause of progressive social legislation then nothing will be impos- 
sible for us. 

It has been a pleasure to work with you during the past year 
and we are wishing you continued success in all that you under- 
take. 

REPORT OF THE ACTIVITIES OF THE STATE LEGISLATIVE 

COUNCIL DURING THE 1945 SESSION OF THE 

GENERAL ASSEMBLY 

"Let us move forward in faith and not sit back in fear" 

The State Legislative Council sponsored four measures in the 
1945 legislative program. Progress was made in all four measures. 
A brief survey follows : 

1. Raise the compulsory school attendance age from 14 to 16 
years and provide for its enforcement through the State De- 
partment of Public Instruction. 

Report— H. B. No. 113 

The age for compulsory school attendance was raised to 15 years 
for the school year 1945-46 and to 16 years thereafter. Children 
living on farms or engaged in commercial fishing or fisheries are 
exempt for the duration of the war and six months thereafter. 
There was also an amendment which provided that for the dura- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 57 

tion of the war and six months thereafter the superintendent or 
principal may excuse any boy to engage in gainful occupations or 
employment permitted by the labor laws of the State. 

The only law passed with reference to enforcement provisions 
is an amendment to the School Machinery Act which provides that 
"The State Board of Education may employ one or more attendance 
officers for each Educational District, determine their duties and 
fix their compensation to be paid from the nine months school 
fund." This of course leaves the matter of providing attendance 
officers in the eight educational districts in the discretion of the 
State Board of Education. No appropriation was made for this pur- 
pose and the only funds that could be used would be money allocated 
for the operation of the nine months school term. 

II. Provide for improved public library service through further 
increase in State Aid for Public Libraries. 

Report — Appropriation Measure 

The request for State Aid for Public Libraries was for an ap- 
propriation of $100,000 increase for each year in the next biennium. 
The Library Commission was granted an increase of $50,000 for 
each year — making a total amount of $175,000 for each year of 
the biennium 1945-47. This amount divided among one hundred 
counties will mean $1660 per year. Each of the participating coun- 
ties is receiving $1440 for the year 1944-45. The request for $225.00 
which was originally made would have meant an additional $500 
for each county. 

The Representatives, who came to Raleigh, were far better in- 
formed about libraries than ever before and their attitude was 
very encouraging. The librarians and people interested in library 
service seemed grateful for the work done in the various counties 
by members of the Legislative Council. 

III. Provide expanded facilities for the care and treatment of 
the feeble-minded children of both races. 

Report — House Resolution No. 297 

A joint resolution was passed giving primary claim for a build- 
ing program at Caswell as soon as construction can be resumed. 

This resolution was a result of overwhelming public opinion, re- 
peatedly expressed toward providing adequate facilities for the 
feeble-minded of our state. Although appropriations were not made 
at this time, it is reasonably certain that construction can be started 
as soon as wartime conditions permit and building restrictions are 
lifed. 

H. B. No. 148 

This bill provides for the establishment of an institution for the 
care of feeble-minded negro children in North Carolina. 

No appropriation was made for this item, but like the CasWell 
building program, it is dependent upon a special session of the 
General Assembly. 

We should stay on the alert and see that when building restric- 
tions are lifted adequate facilities are provided. 

The magnitude of the operation for one year of the four mental 
institutions is indicated below: 

Appropriations for operation and maintenance of the four in- 
stitutions for 1945-46 were $3,943,810.00. 

Increased appropriations over 1943-44 were $1,646,973.00. 



58 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

To be spent for additions and betterments (restoring wards, ma- 
jor repairs, employees' cottages) $992,718.00. 
Members of the Council will be gratified to know that another 
group of handicapped children were provided for in — 

S. B. No. 178 
This bill provides for the establishment of a hospital for the 
treatment of children affected with spastic ailments. 

IV. Make adequate provisions for modernizing the jail system 
and for bringing it up to minimum approved standards. 

H. B. No. 451 

This bill provides for authority for bringing sub-standard jails 
up to minimum health and welfare requirements. While no specific 
legislation was passed, definite gains were made, which partially 
compensates for the loss of the bill after it had passed three of its 
four hurdles. It will take education of the legislators as well as the 
influence of member organizations to get legislation that will im- 
prove our jail system. The objection to this bill came primarily 
from county commissioners and the Sheriff organizations. 

It was gratifying to note that the Press was uniformly for the 
content of the bill. 

While our main activities have been centered on these measures, 
we have not been unconcerned about other Social Legislation. 
Among which were — Increased pay for qualified teachers, Cancer 
Control program, Narcotic Education, Statewide referendum on 
the Liquor Question, Stabilization of a Minimum State Wage Law, 
Divorce Laws, Medical Care, Women's right to serve on Juries, 
Nurses' Bill. 

To obtain social legislation, as well as other desirable legisla- 
tion, the most important thing is to elect legislators and governors 
who are sincerely interested in this kind of legislation. 
April 6, 1945. 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF EDGECOMBE 

The annual District Meeting was held in the Church of the 
Good Shepherd, Rocky Mount, on October 21, with good attendance 
and a most inspiring program. The reports of the secretaries 
showed interest in our Auxiliary programs, especially the Educa- 
tional program. More study classes were held during the past year 
than ever before. 

In January, an Executive Board meeting was held with all the 
District officers present. It was decided at this meeting that the 
District of Edgecombe should offer at least two scholarships for 
young people to Vade Mecum for the Youth Conference week, the 
funds to be raised by asking each member of every branch of the 
Auxiliary to give ten cents; the quota was raised very promptly. 

During Lent, each branch in the District was given an oppor- 
tunity to contribute to a fund for the Rev. W. J. Gordon's work in 
Alaska, as a special missionary objective for the District during 
Lent. The funds were sent to Mrs. S. M. Gary, Missionary corre- 
spondent. She reported $70 sent Mr. Gordon and $5 sent to the 
Gordon baby as a gift from the District. 

A Christian Education Conference was held at the home of the 
Chairman, Mrs. Philips, with a good representation from the 



The Woman's Auxiliary 59 

branches present, and plans discussed for carrying out the study 
programs more systematically. Also, the chairman of Young Peo- 
ple's Work, Mrs. Long, and the chairman of Christian Social Rela- 
tions, Mrs. Lewis, held a joint conference at the home of Mrs. 
Long in May, and each branch secretary of the two departments 
was invited to attend. More than twenty were present and a most 
worthwhile discussion was led by Mrs. Long for young people and 
by Mrs. Lewis for Christian Social Relations. 

We feel that our District has made a real contribution in service 
since our last report, and with more interest being shown in Chris- 
tian Education and the work with our young people we hope to 
accomplish greater things. 

The fall meeting will be held in Jackson. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Nelle H. Gregory. 

REPORT OF DISTRICT OF FORSYTH-ROWAN 

The annual meeting of the Forsyth-Rowan District was held 
jointly with the Guilford District at St. Andrew's Mission, Rock- 
ingham County, on October 26th, 1944, with Mrs. Charles Swart 
of the Guilford District presiding. 

An excellent missionary program was given. Of timely interest 
was the address by Miss Venetia Cox, Missionary to China, from 
the Diocese of Hangkow. 

Mrs. U. T. Holmes, Jr., spoke on "Mission Study in the Woman's 
Auxiliary." She discussed the books to be used for mission study 
this year. They are "Southeast Asia" and "American Indians." 

Other speakers during the afternoon session were the Rev. Moul- 
trie Moore on "The United Youth Movement"; Mrs. W. S. Holmes 
on "Intercessory Prayer Groups," and the Rev. George Henry on 
"Forward in Service." 

The offering received was sent to the Diocesan Treasurer to be 
used for the purchase of a permanent camp site for Negro Confer- 
ences. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Sarah Rawlings Jewett. 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF GRANVILLE 

The speakers at the Educational Institute for the Fall Meeting 
of the District of Granville, held in Holy Innocents, Henderson, 
October 23, 1944, were no mean substitute for the Auxiliary Con- 
ference at Vade Mecum and as a result the work of the Auxiliary 
has shown no lack of inspiration. 

Mrs. U. T. Holmes' talk on the Mission Study in the Woman's 
Auxiliary, Southeast Asia and the Southwest Pacific, brought home 
to us the importance of the study of this particular part of the 
world just at this time. Miss Venetia Cox told of her personal ex- 
periences in China after the war began and of how determined the 
young people were in trying to carry on their schools. Appropria- 
tions are inadequate for even absolute necessities. The Rev. George 
Henry, Chairman of Promotion, gave us an inspiring message on 
the Church's Program. He said "The Church is the body of Christ 



60 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

in the world." He emphasized that through our participation in 
the Every Member Canvass we can give our support to the Church 
throughout the world, that our task is to redeem the world, and that 
it is only through the Church that peace can be realized. 

At the request of the Chairman of the Youth Commission, I ap- 
pointed as Secretary of Young People's Work for the District, Mrs. 
Joel Cheatham of Henderson. She explained the purpose of this 
branch of work. 

Ten dollars, accumulated over a period of time, was sent to the 
Grace Chen Educational fund. 

Mrs. Peoples made an appeal for help for the Negro Camp Site 
and $5.00 from the offering for the day was given to this project. 

Mrs. Walter Burwell, Missionary Correspondent, asked for $5.00 
to be used for a Christmas gift for Miss Bettie Gordon. This re- 
quest was granted. 

Tribute was paid those who had entered the larger life, espe- 
cially Mrs. H. G. Cooper who has meant so much to the work of the 
Church. 

Sixty-four members answered to Roll Call. 

Holy Trinity, Townsville, extended an invitation for the meeting 
in the Fall of 1945. 

As Chairman, I wish to express my approval of having annual 
reports of the Departments sent to the Chairman. I think this 
plan will keep us in closer touch with the work of the Auxiliary as 
a whole. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Susan Webb Adams. 



REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF GUILFORD 

Since the District of Guilford had the same program as all other 
districts as planned by our Diocesan president, it does not seem 
necessary to make a report on it except to say that the District of 
Guilford met jointly with the District of Forsyth-Rowan. It was 
well attended and was an event because we met at the mission of 
Miss Lillie Hill. This in itself is of great benefit. To see the prog- 
ress which has taken place in this mission field, especially in the 
development of the summer conference equipment, was a thrill and 
a great satisfaction. 

At our next meeting it will be necessary to elect a new Missionary 
Correspondent and I would like to express my appreciation of the 
work which in the past three years has gone on under the leadership 
of Mrs. J. S. Hinsdale. Her interest and efforts have been out- 
standing. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Bertha K. Swart. 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF MECKLENBURG 

The 39th Meeting of the District of Mecklenburg was held at the 
Church of the Holy Comforter, Charlotte, N. C, in joint meeting

attendance from each district. 



The Woman's Auxiliaby 61 

Gratifying reports from the department chairmen were given. 

Mrs. U. T. Holmes gave a lecture on the Mission Study Book for 
the year. 

Rev. Willis G. Clark conducted noonday prayers. 

Miss Venetia Cox, returned missionary from China, was the guest 
speaker. She told us of her work there which was most interesting 
and inspiring. 

Mrs. W. S. Holmes held a period of instruction on the formation 
of Intercessory Prayer Groups. 

Rev. George Henry, rector of Christ Church, Charlotte, N. C, 
presented the plan of action for the Diocese of North Carolina. 

Mrs. E. G. Peoples, our president, was present and gave a most 
inspiring address. 

The fall meeting will be held in Charlotte, N. C, the time and 
place to be announced later. 

Bertha T. Mauney. 

REPORT OF THE NEGRO DISTRICT 

To report work done in God's vineyard — what a responsibility! 
What if we haven't done our best? So much greater is the re- 
sponsibility! We do give God humble thanks for many who are 
sharing so nobly; many who are gleaning well! 

The women in our district demonstrated their earnestness when 
they kept "night watch" last April and travelled very early to 
attend (some 20 strong) the "Annual Meeting" held in St. Paul's 
Church, Winston-Salem. They felt greatly rewarded, especially 
to hear Dr. D. A. McGregor. 

The Fall District Meeting at dear old St. Augustine's was an 
inspiration. The planned program of study discussions was heart- 
ily received by our women and everyone thought the meeting the 
best ever held. Great appreciation was expressed for all of the 
leaders but especial delight was felt in having Mrs. U. T. Holmes, 
Jr., our former President, present and address us. 

Many branches report helpful meetings being held, spiritual 
growth being gained through study groups and the reading of such 
books as "The Robe"; "Blessed Are the Meek"; "As a Man Think- 
eth"; the presiding Bishop's recommended book, "Earth Might Be 
Fair," and Church magazines. 

The chairman was privileged to visit St. Cyprian's branch, Ox- 
ford, in March. In a weekly meeting fifteen were present and what 
an inspiration to see their enthusiasm! Reports were wonderful. 
They had taken a $22 class pledge — planned sharing in every part 
of the Auxiliary program besides; meeting financial obligations 
locally, as well as giving hours of service in work at the Church. 

Many like reports could be made of other branches but time will 
not permit. We are grateful, however, for Rocky Mount and Wil- 
son branches as well as all who have so nobly responded to every 
call. 

Our Treasurer's report shows that out of the nineteen branches 
in our district twelve have made good showings in meeting obliga- 
tions in 1944. 



62 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

Our first year in office, Central Fund was much less than $20; 
1944 shows $47.50 with a start of $14.75 for 1945. Pledges for 1945 
—$167.00, with a start for 1945 of $46.01. 

The women in our district are progressing — thanks to our Heaven- 
ly Father! (United Thank Offering must be encouraging. Branches 
report having sent in.) 

May I again thank each and everyone for your faith and kind 
cooperation — your fine friendship and helpful fellowship and may 
all say we'll — 

"Go, labor on! spend and be spent 
Thy joy to do the Father's will 
It is the way the Master went 
Should not the servant tread it still?" 

Constance S. Young. 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF ORANGE 

For its fall meeting, the District of Orange held a joint meeting 
with the District of Wake on October 24, 1944, at the Church of the 
Good Shepherd in Raleigh. 

Since the Auxiliary Conferences at Kanuga and Vade Mecum had 
to be dispensed with, our President planned an Educational Pro- 
gram, with four speakers. 

The first speaker was Mrs. Urban T. Holmes of Chapel Hill, who 
spoke on the Fellowship of Study. She outlined our mission study 
subjects for the year: Southeast Asia and Southwest Pacific and 
the American Indian. 

She was followed by Mrs. W. S. Holmes of Greensboro, who spoke 
on the Fellowship of Prayer. She gave many practical suggestions 
for the organization of prayer groups as well as many helpful sug- 
gestions for our private prayers. 

Noonday prayers were led by Bishop Penick. 

Our third speaker was Miss Venetia Cox of Winterville, N. C, 
and China, where she has served as a missionary for many years. 
She spoke on the Fellowship of Service. She gave a first-hand re- 
port on present conditions of our Church's work in China, showing 
how the work has continued in spite of the devastating effects of 
the war. 

Our fourth speaker was Rev. George Henry of Charlotte, Chair- 
man of the Department of Promotion. He spoke on the Fellowship 
of Giving. He suggested to us that our money represents our 
time and efforts and talents and that giving of our money is a 
Christian privilege as a representation of ourselves. 

The meeting was well attended and each member felt benefitted 
by such a well planned and well presented program. 

Mrs. R. J. M. Hobbs. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 63 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF RICHMOND 

The annual meeting of the District of Richmond was combined 
with the District of Mecklenburg and held at the Church of the 
Holy Comforter, Charlotte, with Mrs. W. L. Mauney, Chairman of 
the District of Mecklenburg, presiding. 

The Communion Service was celebrated by the Rev. Mr. Owens, 
assisted by the Rev. Mr. Wheeler. 

The meeting was unusually well attended, everyone showing 
deepest interest. There were no formal reports from the Branches. 
Mrs. Peoples had planned a program of outstanding interest and 
helpfulness, and she gave us an outline of the Synod of Nashville, 
which she had just attended. Mrs. U. T. Holmes gave an excellent 
review of the study books "West of the Date Line" and "Southeast 
Asia." Miss Venetia Cox, returned missionary from China, gave 
a vivid picture of a missionary's life in China today. The Rev. 
George Henry presented the Church's Program in a new and in- 
spiring light, as did Mrs. W. S. Holmes in her talk on Prayer and 
suggestions for Prayer Groups. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mary Little Rice. 

REPORT OF THE DISTRICT OF WAKE 

In looking over the reports of the parish secretaries of the dif- 
ferent departments I find growth in the field of service, particularly 
in the entertainment of service men and women, cooperation with 
welfare and other civic agencies, splendid programs planned for 
worship and education, but too few of the women of the church par- 
ticipate, to say nothing of so-called members of Woman's Auxil- 
iary. From a financial point the District contributes its propor- 
tionate part toward the general budget of the Auxiliary. 

The Fall meeting of the District of Wake was held at the Church 
of the Good Shepherd, Raleigh, October 24, 1944. This meeting 
combined several splendid features. It was a great privilege to 
have the opportunity to meet with the District of Orange in Wor- 
ship, Fellowship and Study. 

The Institute of Christian Education was most helpful, creating 
a real interest in the subjects for study which facilitated program 
planning. 

As all the Districts in the Diocese had the same general program 
at their meetings I shall not give a detailed report. The residue 
of the offering $18.75 was given for a fund to provide a camp site 
for the Negro youth. 

Three new officers were elected: Chairman, Secretary and Sec- 
retary of Christian Education. The Secretary of Christian Edu- 
cation elected, Mrs. Carl Herman, moved into another District. 
Mrs. Marshall Augustine has been appointed in her place. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Gertrude L. Hill.

ITEMS SUGGESTED FOR CONSIDERATION IN PREPARING 
THE COUNCIL'S 1947 LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM 

1. Adequate provision for the enforcement of the compulsory school 
attendance law through the State Department of Public In- 
struction. 

2. Provision for modernizing the jail system and for bringing it up 
to approved minimum standards. 

These two items are unfinished business on which we will want 
to continue to work until we secure constructive action. 

3. More adequate provision for medical care and hospitalization. 

4. Minimum wage and hour law. 

5. Provision for financing cancer control clinics set up under the 
State Board of Health. 

These are new items which need to be presented to your or- 
ganization for study and action at your next state convention 
or executive board meeting. 

6. Continued support of the program to provide adequate care and 
treatment of white and Negro feebleminded children. 

This item was included for continued support since no definite 
appropriations for buildings were included in the bills passed 
by the recent legislature. The reason for the failure to in- 
clude specific appropriations was the uncertainty of building 
conditions at this time, and that may be taken care of by a 
special session of the Legislature.

74 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

THE PARISH COUNCIL 

A Parish is a religious congregation comprising all those who wor- 
ship together in one church. Each Parish is a very important part 
of the organization of the whole Church. The Rector is the head 
of the Parish and of the Parish Council. 

A Council is an assembly of persons met in consultation or to give 
advice. 

A Parish Council, therefore, is an assembly of persons within a 
Parish, who meet to consult and discuss with each other the needs 
of the Parish. Many Parishes, through Councils, are realizing and 
meeting the need of definite programs of service. Usually the leaders 
of various groups in the Parish Vestry, Sunday School, Y. P. S. L., 
Auxiliary Branches, Boy Scouts, Choir, Altar Guild, etc., compose 
the Council. In order to interest the Parish in Community Social 
Service and also to recognize members of a Parish who are doing 
that kind of work, representation can be given for outside activi- 
ties. This will be of value in carrying out the Forward in Service 
Program, which emphasizes Christian Community Service. 

Some Duties of a Parish Council: 

1. To make a survey of the Parish, its conditions, responsibilities 
and needs. This survey will bring forth new possibilities for 
work and new material. 

2. To understand what each organization is trying to do and to 
feel a responsibility for each organization. 

3. To plan ways and means of enlisting every member in some part 
of the Church's work. To definitely plan to interest and enlist 
new people in the work of the Parish. 

4. To make a survey of workers, so that when a vacancy has to be 
filled, instead of the Rector having to try to find someone, he will 
through the Parish Council's survey, really know the right per- 
son for the particular place. 

5. To see that Leadership Training is a part of the life of a suc- 
cessful Parish. 

6. To demonstrate not only to others but to ourselves that there 
is a unity of purpose, not a spirit of rivalry, throughout the 
work of the Church. The Church's mission must be the pervad- 
ing ambition of the members of the Council. They should be 
conversant with the whole Program of the Church. 

7. The Council should formulate a Parish program which will pre- 
sent definite suggestions for the united task of the men, women 
and children of the Parish. 

The Parish Council is valuable in bringing into closer understand- 
ing all of the organizations. Parishes, where the Council plan has 
been adopted, unite their entire membership in a program of service 
to individuals, the community, the Diocese, the nation, the world. 
It is in these Parishes that there is the truest comprehension of the 
statement that "the Parish is not only a field in which to work but 
a force with which to work." 

"The day is sure to come when man's work and woman's work in 
the Church will be clearly seen to be only coordinate parts of one 
great and glorious whole." — Mary Emery Twing. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 75 

SUGGESTIONS FOR BRANCH PRESIDENTS 

1. Have Installation of Officers and Chairmen annually by your 
Rector. 

2. Read all letters and other communications from Diocesan and 
District officers and departmental chairmen. Select what is useful 
and educational and tell it to your group. 

3. Get acquainted with your Church Missions House, 281 Fourth 
Avenue, New York 10, New York. They will do their best to an- 
swer any questions. Order from them the new booklet, "When 
You Organize," "Women in the Life of the Church" and "When 
You Are Chairman." You will find all three very helpful and each 
costs only a small sum — 5 to 10 cents. "When You Are Chair-

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY* 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then 
let him say: 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as 
Diocesan Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally re- 
ceived and admitted into their respective offices in your presence, 
and that we should ask the blessing of God upon them for their 
support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you 
have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these thy servants. 
Who put their trust in thee. 
Send them help from thy holy place. 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with thy most gracious favour, 
and further us with thy continual help ; that in all our works begun, 
continued and ended in thee, we may glorify thy holy name, and 
finally, by thy mercy, obtain everlasting life : Through Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give thy Grace, we 
humbly beseech thee, to these thy servants who have been chosen to 
serve thee in the special work for which they have been selected; 
Grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love 
in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportuni- 
ties for service, to the glory of thy great name and the benefit of 
thy holy Church! Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us O God, with the vision of thy Being and thy Beauty, that 
in the strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be 

faithful, zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the 
Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God our Father and 



The following is quoted from the author's letter: 



The Woman's Auxiliary 81 

the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. 
Amen. 

Benediction 

The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in 
your work in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen.

for your use in your Year Book for the Woman's Auxiliary." 

Faithfully yours, 

Paul Matthews, 

Retired Bishop of New Jersey. 



PRAYERS 




FOR THE WAR-BEREAVED 

Almighty God, who didst offer thine only Son to be made perfect 
through suffering, and to win our salvation by enduring the cross; 
Sustain with thy healing power all those whose loved ones have 
given their lives in the service of our country. Redeem, we pray 
thee, the pain of their bereavement, that knowing their loss to be 
the price of our freedom, they may remember the gratitude of the 
nation for which they gave so costly a sacrifice. And grant, O 
Lord, that we may highly resolve that these dead shall not have 
died in vain, and that out of the agony of the present hour there may 
arise a new and better world in which thy will shall rule, to the 
honor of thy Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen. 

THANKS FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN FAITHFUL 
TO DEATH 

Father, 

We thank thee for the spirit which conquers death, 

For all those who have gone gladly to certain destruction for some 

great cause. 
For all those who, facing clearly the consequences, 
Have chosen, not the way of safety, but the way of danger; and so 

died. 

We thank thee for all those who, of their own will, 
Have given their lives for their duty, 
Winning thereby an eternal reward. 

We thank thee for all those who, fearing naught but dishonour, 

Have counted their life a very little thing, 

A thing to be adventured jestingly, so that duty be done. 

Give unto us also this spirit, O Father, 

That we may be worthy of those who are gone — 

That to us too duty may be everything and life an irrelevance. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 83 

FOR THE NATION 

Creator and Ruler of mankind, 

We pray thee this day for our country, 

That her new life may be established and built up in thyself, 

That all hatred and malice, 

All indifference to the sufferings of others, 

All narrow exclusiveness and selfish greed, 

May be swept away by the breath of thy spirit: 

And that public-spirit, honour and justice, 

Co-operation in service, self-sacrifice for the good of the whole 

people, 
May flourish abundantly amongst us. 

We pray thee also for ourselves, 

That thou wilt forge us into tools meet for the service of our 

country : 
Burn from us all selfishness and pride: 
Purify us from all baseness: 
Fill us with thy divine passion 
To uplift the weak, 
To sweep away oppression and wrong, 

To give to every man, even to the lowest and most degraded, 
The opportunity of a full life 
That may be lived to thy glory and to the service of mankind. 

FOR UNITY 

God of all nations, 

We beseech thee to bring that day nearer 

When our country shall be truly one, 

When every barrier shall be broken down, 

When no man shall work for his own selfish good. 

When no man shall defraud or oppress his neighbour. 

When no man shall reckon his neighbour worse than himself, 

When none shall be despised or outcast, 

But all shall be free to work in equal manhood for thee and their 

country. 
From J. S. Hoyland, A Book of Prayers Written for Use in an 

Indian College. 

THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY PRAYER

labor diligently, and give liberally to make him known to all na- 
tions as their Saviour and their King: through the same Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 
Almighty God, help us, we pray thee, to shed abroad the light of 
Thy Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy king- 
dom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our 
gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy 
glory, as the waters cover the sea; through Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 



84 Sixty-Third Annual Report 

FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 
God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please Thee, 
mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and 
rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR VOLUNTEERS 
Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young 
man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement of Thy 
Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, with such 
love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the uttermost parts 
of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all things which are 
for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 

A PRAYER FOR THE DIOCESE

blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons of 
this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties committed 
to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and earnest- 
ness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their minds, 
purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have 
contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never- 
failing succession of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated 
through all generations, as a blessed memory, and their good deeds 
be accepted ; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN WORKERS 
God our heavenly Father, we thank thee for the gift of thy dear 
Son. Grant that we who have received him in our hearts may joy- 
fully go forth with him on many errands. Bless those who toil for 
thee in far-off places. Comfort them in their loneliness, and unite 
our work to theirs. Accept our gifts, receive our prayers, and 
use us for the sake of thy Son, Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 
Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, that 
it is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, we 
beseech Thee, upon the supply work of Thy Church, especially in 
this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, the 
sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens with our 
ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR RURAL WORK 
Blessed Lord Jesus, the Good Shepherd of the sheep, Whose flocks 
are upon a thousand hills, Who has put into our hearts the hopes of 
a better country; bless all who search for Thy sheep in scattered 
places that they may fetch them home to Thee; Who art with the 
Father and the Holy Spirit, ever one God, world without end. Amen. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 85 

FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 
O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the 
Truth and the Life, grant that we, looking unto Him may set for- 
ward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Guide us, O Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, and 
in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, making 
the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest. Who 
dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and joy 
of the citizens of that holy land. Amen. 

THE FORWARD IN SERVICE MOVEMENT 
We pray Thee, God, for Thy Blessing upon the Forward in 
Service Movement of Thy Church. Use it, we beseech Thee, to open 
our eyes to the needs of men for the Gospel of Christ, and to the 
opportunities that lie before the Church to extend His Kingdom. 
Stir up, Lord, the wills of all Thy people to share in this work 
with gladness of heart and self-sacrificing spirit. Let not our pur- 
pose slack, but let the kingdoms of this world become the Kingdom 
of our God and of His Christ. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY 
Lord Jesus Christ, Who didst pray for Thy disciples that they 
might be one even as Thou art one with the Father; draw us to 
Thyself, that in common love and obedience to Thee, we may be 
united to one another in the fellowship of the one Spirit, that the 
world may believe Thou art Lord, to the glory of God the Father. 
Amen. 

FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVASS 
God our Father, who providest for thy children in advance of 
their needs, bless we pray the work of our Every Member Canvass, 
and grant us all to share in it with glad and willing hearts for the 
sake of thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

A PRAYER FOR EVERY DAY 
O Almighty God, Who canst bring good out of evil and makest 
even the wrath of man turn to Thy praise; we beseech Thee so to 
order and dispose the issue of the war in Europe that the human 
race, and especially all Christendom, may be brought through this 
strife to a lasting peace and that the nations of the world may be 
united in a firmer fellowship for the promotion of Thy glory and 
the good of all mankind; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 
Holy Spirit, Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
our missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen.

outstretched to bless. Do with us what Thou wilt and as Thou 
wilt. So shall the earth be filled with the knowledge of Thyself as 
the waters cover the sea. And to Thee be the glory and praise, now

HISTORY OF THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

in 

THE DIOCESE OF NORTH CAROLINA 

1882-1946 

i 

"The Board of Missions at the General Convention in Baltimore 
in 1871, created the Woman's Auxiliary. Its first secretary, Miss 
Mary A. Emery, took office on the second day of January, 1872. Her 
appointment was announced in a letter sent to the rectors through- 
out the Church, asking their cooperation in the new enterprise, by 
the appointment of a parish secretary in each parish. To the fifteen 
hundred letters sent out, some three hundred and fifty answers 
were received, and with the appointment of these parish secretaries 
the work began." 

This paragraph, quoted from "A Manual" of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary, gives the beginning of the national organization known as 
the "Woman's Auxiliary to the Board of Missions." Next year, in 
1873 at least two branches were organized in North Carolina, one 
in Asheville and one in Edenton, the whole state at that time being 
only one diocese. In 1881 Mrs. John Wilkes of Charlotte conferred 
with the Rt. Rev. Theodore B. Lyman concerning a diocesan or- 
ganization, and the following year at the Convention held in Tar- 
boro, he appointed her Diocesan Secretary and she organized the 
six existing parish branches, Asheville, Edenton, Fayetteville, 
Charlotte, Hillsboro and Lenoir, into a diocesan branch. 

The first "anniversary" meeting was held in Charlotte on Thurs- 
day afternoon, May 24, 1883, in connection with the Diocesan Con- 
vention. Eight of the then eleven parish branches were repre- 
sented by delegates and there were visitors from five or more other 
parishes, and from the Presbyterian and Methodist Missionary 
Societies in Charlotte. Miss Julia Emery who had succeeded her 
sister as Executive Secretary, was the speaker. One item of busi- 
ness was the adoption of a Central Fund of ten cents. A summary 
of the financial report shows gifts of $88.94 to Foreign and General 
Missions, $70 to Domestic Missions, $492.05 and one box, not valued, 
to Diocesan and Parochial Missions, and an expenditure of $15.45 
for postage, stationery and printing. During that year, the diocese 
of East Carolina was organized and the branches in that portion 
of the state withdrew from the North Carolina Diocesan Branch, 
with the exception of Fayetteville which remained until 1888. 
.Later, in 1895 when the Missionary District of Asheville was or- 
ganized, there was a further loss of some of the original branches. 

A few gleanings from the early Annual Reports are of significant 
interest. Miss Emery was a frequent visitor at the diocesan meet- 
ings and soon after the branch was organized, made this appeal, 
"If every female communicant in the Diocese (state) of North 
Carolina would conscientiously give one cent a week, there would 
be $1,000 extra for the Board of Missions." The first "Special" 
was undertaken in 1885-1886, an effort to raise $25 for the "Tokio 
Hospital, Japan." The first Constitution was adopted in 1887 and 
it stated that five persons could form a quorum. A quotation from 
one of Miss Emery's early addresses is a challenge still, "Cannot 



4 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

every interested woman this year, take as a special duty, the work 
of interesting someone uninterested?" 

For thirteen years Mrs. Wilkes served as diocesan secretary, the 
only diocesan officer, though each convocation had an assistant 
secretary, approved by the Dean, to help in the work. Too much 
cannot be said of Mrs. Wilkes' faithful, wise and consecrated serv- 
ice, not only in the early years of the Auxiliary's history, but in 
her further capacity as Honorary Secretary, then Honorary Presi- 
dent until her death in 1912, having then served through a period 
of thirty years. 

Upon Mrs. Wilkes' resignation as Diocesan Secretary in 1895, 
Bishop Joseph Blount Cheshire appointed Miss Mary Horner of 
Oxford, as her successor. Miss Horner had formerly been head of 
the Junior Auxiliary which became a part of the diocesan organiza- 
tion in 1890, when the children's missionary societies which had 
been known as "Ministering Children's Leagues" or "Faithful "En- 
deavor Societies" were formally unified. In 1895 the Babies Branch 
was organized with Mrs. Walter J. Smith in charge. 

Miss Horner appointed an advisory committee to assist her in 
the duties of office. Her report of 1897 refers to the observance 
of four intercessary days, on the Feast of the Epiphany, the An- 
nunciation, the Transfiguration and on St. Andrew's Day. Her ad- 
dresses are filled with an emphasis on the power of prayer and the 
challenge of the spiritual life. 

Miss Horner resigned in 1904. The women of the Auxiliary felt 
that the diocesan branch should have a President, and requested 
Bishop Cheshire to appoint his sister, Miss Kate Cheshire, to this 
office. He did so, but Miss Cheshire requested that she might serve 
as Executive Secretary under a President, and Mrs. W. H. S. Bur- 
gwyn was appointed first president. The organization was further 
developed by the appointment of Mrs. Dorian Blair of Greensboro 
as Treasurer. Mrs. Burgwyn served only one year when Mrs. 
Wilkes again became Diocesan head. At Mrs. Wilkes' death seven 
years later, Miss Cheshire was again asked to serve as president. 
She accepted and Miss Claudia Hunter became the diocesan secre- 
tary. 

In 1907, the Auxiliary celebrated its Silver Jubilee, meeting 
again in Tarboro where it had first been organized. At this an- 
niversary two memorable offerings were made. Annie Cheshire, 
daughter of the Bishop, offered for service in China where she is 
still working. Then, at a Corporate Communion Service, a silver 
offering of one thousand dollars was placed on the altar. This was 
used to help build St. Gabriel's Church, Selma. Another important 
event of this period was the meeting of the Synod of Sewanee in 
St. Peter's Church, Charlotte in 1912. This diocesan branch' was 
again hostess to the Provincial Auxiliary when the Synod met at 
St. Paul's, Winston-Salem in 1938. 

By 1918, the attendance at the Annual Meetings had increased 
to such an extent that it seemed advisable to have the meetings 
separate from the Diocesan Convention. At the meeting that year, 
at the Chapel of the Cross, Chapel Hill, Miss Cheshire resigned 
and Mrs. W. A. Hoke was appointed to the office of President. Mrs. 
Hoke served little more than a year when she was called to a higher 



The Woman's Auxiliary 5 

service. From the time of her death until the next Annual Meet- 
ing, the work was directed by Mrs. W. L. Wall, vice-president. 

In the early days of the Auxiliary, all rectors were the active 
presidents of their branches and made the appointments. In the 
same manner, the Bishop served in the Diocese, until in 1921 when 
the delegates elected their own president, choosing Mrs. T. W. 
Bickett. Another change made at this meeting was the rule of 
rotation of office, and three years later, Mrs. Bickett was succeeded 
by Mrs. W. W. Way of St. Mary's School, Raleigh. While Mrs. 
Bickett was president, the eight Districts were organized and later, 
when the Convocational System was done away with, the Negro 
District was added. In 1927, Mrs. F. S. Spruill was elected presi- 
dent and three years later, Miss Rena Clark was chosen to that- 
office. 

During Miss Clark's term, in 1932, the Auxiliary celebrated its 
Golden Jubilee in Holy Innocents' Church, Henderson. Greetings 
were sent to this meeting by the six charter branches of fifty years 
before, and an offering of $1,500 was given in appreciation of 
Bishop Cheshire, and was used to complete the building fund for 
the Cheshire Building at St. Augustine's College. The minutes of 
this meeting, in recording the reports of the past presidents, show 
some extent of the work at that time ; in the growing interest in the 
United Thank Offering, the formation of branches in rural and 
textile areas of the diocese, the development of Inter-Racial work, 
the reorganization of the Box Work and the clothing of children 
at the Thompson Orphanage, and the Treasure and Trinket Fund 
which provided Communion Silver for needy missions. 

Miss Emma J. Hali became president in 1933, and during that 
summer there was held the first Auxiliary Conference at the re- 
cently acquired Camp and Conference Center, Vade Mecum. Mrs. 
John L. Gilmer directed the two-weeks' Conference and the faculty 
was composed of Bishop Penick, Rev. and Mrs. Theodore H. Partrick, 
Rev. Jean Vache and Mrs. Wm. J. Gordon with Rev. Roderick H. 
Jackson as chaplain. From a small beginning, this conference has 
become an important factor in the Auxiliary life. 

Miss Hall was succeeded by Mrs. Wm. J. Gordon who, in turn, 
was followed by Mrs. W. S. Holmes as president. In 1942 Mrs. U. 
T. Holmes was elected president, but after serving one year, she 
moved with her family to Washington in the interest of war work. 
Mrs. E. G. Peoples became the next president, and to her fell the 
difficult task of leading the Auxiliary during the abnormal years 
of World War II. But the work, with its carefully laid founda- 
tions, had gone on from strength to strength, and in spite of the 
fact that no Annual Meeting could be held in 1945, in 1946, after 
the cessation of hostilities, the women met in St. Timothy's Church, 
Wilson, with a sense of ever increasing interest and power. At 
this meeting Mrs. Henry C. Bourne became president. 

Article II of the original By-laws says, "The object of this Aux- 
iliary is threefold — prayer for missions, study of missions and work 
for missions." It has been impossible to tell of the prayerful in- 
terest, and the generous gifts to the various mission fields of the 
world, or to record the names of those of this diocese who have 
served the cause of Christ at home or abroad. Nor has it been 



6 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

possible to mention the faithful groups of officers and the great 
hosts of women who have given of themselves so generously during 
the past sixty-four years. If time and space allowed, it would be 
interesting to enumerate the "many and divers" activities in which 
this Auxiliary has been engaged, both in its own projects and in 
the program of the Church. But no history of a living thing ends; 
it but merges in the present, with the future. So in this year of 
our Lord 1946, He commands that we, with searching of heart, and 
a renewed emphasis on the eternal things of the Spirit, go forward, 
and we have His promise as we go, "Lo I am with you alway." 

Anna Clark Gordon.

PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS 

64th ANNUAL MEETING — WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

St. Timothy's Church, Wilson, April 30, 1946 

In this, our first annual meeting since the cessation of hostilities, 
we are met to consider The Mission of the Church — A Power for 
Peace. In the hymn which we have just sung we have acknowledged 
that ours is the task to 

"Publish glad tidings 

Tidings of peace 

Tidings of Jesus, redemption and release." 

First of all let us consider the Mission of the Church to be a 
Power for Peace in the individual life. All of our worship and 
fellowship here together, as well as Mrs. Gordon's interpretation of 
the Woman's Auxiliary prayer, with its broad implications, and 
the wise counsel of our Bishop, will help us to understand and ap- 
preciate this fact more. 

Then, too, the Church must be a Power for Peace in her cor- 
porate life and acts. It is my purpose to report to you some of 
the ways that portion of the Church known as the Woman's Aux- 
iliary in the Diocese of North Carolina has tried to be a power 
for peace during the past year. Since, under our new plan for 
reports, summaries of the reports of all departments were sent to 
me I am better prepared to do this than ever before. 

In the department of Christian Education we cooperated with the 
plan of the National church in putting on an extensive monthly 
program of education in preparation for the Reconstruction and 
Advance Fund. We bought all the books listed in Looking Towards 
Triennial, and established a lending library for the use of our 
women. 

In the department of Christian Social Relations we have not 
only continued to support our own diocesan missionary, and the 
Thompson Orphanage, but participated in sending Christmas pack- 
ages to churchmen in Europe, material aid to churches overseas, 
and numerous other drives for food and clothing. Through our 
membership in the Women's Action Committee for Victory and 
Lasting Peace we have lent our support to such national legisla- 
tion as seemed to advance the cause of peace in the world. 



34 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

In addition to completing our assignment of Supply Work sent 
to us from the National Church, we sent substantial gifts of second- 
hand clothing to St. Mary's School for Indian girls at Springfield, 
South Dakota. 

The United Thank Offering has shown a consistent gain. 

In the department of Finance we met our increased budget 
without any trouble at all, and ended 1945 with a nice balance of 
which you'll hear more from the treasurer. 

The activities of the president for 1945 were much the same as 
for the other two years, and consisted in directing the Woman's 
Auxiliary Conference at Vade Mecum, attending and addressing 
all District Meetings, conducting several training institutes, at- 
tending the Provincial Executive Board meeting in Atlanta, at- 
tending meetings of the Diocesan Executive Council, the Depart- 
ment of Christian Education, our own Executive Board and visiting 
as many auxiliaries as possible. 

Even from this glimpse of a tiny portion of the Church's cor- 
porate life and action, I think we can realize fully the truth of the 
following statement from the Presiding Bishop's Easter message: 

"Surely on this Easter we must be conscious of the fact that 
God is summoning His Church to fulfil a responsibility immeasure- 
ably greater than any which He has assigned to us in the past. 
Not only is it world-wide in scope, but its fulfillment involves 
problems which have hitherto baffled us." 

In planning this meeting we have had in mind some of these 
problems which the Church must face if she would be a Power for 
Peace. On all sides we hear the cry for trained leaders. This 
afternoon we're going to try to show you how the Church is facing 
this problem in our Diocese. 

Another vital problem, not only in America but in the world, is 
that of minority groups. To bring us information about what the 
Church is doing for one of these groups — the Indian — the Rev. 
Vine Deloria — has traveled all the way from South Dakota. 

In a short meeting of this kind of course we can only hope to 
start your thinking, and trust that your interest will be sufficiently 
aroused to continue your thinking, and plan your action after 
you go home. 

In planning any action for the Church today we are coming to 
realize more and more the importance of all churches working to- 
gether, and we have on our program two people who are well quali- 
fied to tell us how the Church may be a Power for Peace through 
cooperation. 

It is our hope that, when this meeting is over, every person who 
has attended will be thoroughly convinced that it is his task to help 
the Church in being A Power for Peace. In our effort no doubt we 
shall come to appreciate the timeliness of the subject chosen by 
the Woman's Auxiliary, for emphasis at the next Triennial — 
"Strength to Build." What shall we be asked to help build? You 
will find a positive answer in the four subjects around which the 



The Woman's Auxiliary 35 

whole meeting in Philadelphia next Sept. 10-20 will be planned, — 
The Christian Faith 
The Christian Home 
The Christian World 
World Mission of the Christian Church 

In your reading and program planning will you keep these things 
in mind ? Take care of the little green leaflet in your packet given 
you when you registered. Use frequently the two prayers in the 
center of this leaflet. You will find that the first is for the mission 
of the Church in her corporate life; the second is for individuals 
who make up her corporate life. Both are necessary if we would 
actually bring to pass the high potential of The Mission of the 
Church as a Power for Peace. 

Zion haste, thy mission high fulfilling! 

Leah Graves Peoples.

36 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

The Vice President, Mrs. R. T. B. Little, took the chair while the 
president gave her annual message. She said this meeting was a 
unique one in that it had no space for even one report. 

The Executive Board as a body was then introduced to the dele- 
gates and given an opportunity to say anything they wished in re- 
gard to their particular departments. 

The treasurer, Mrs. R. H. Bouligny, gave her report and recom- 
mended that the budget for $8000 be accepted at this meeting and 
itemized in the fall; seconded by Mrs. Thomas and carried. The 
balance on hand at the close of the year was $3298.08. This amount 
includes an accumulation of monies toward the salary of a negro 
social worker and also $600 for the Triennial fund. 

The following expenditures were recommended by the Board: 

The Bickett Memorial Fund $135 

(This makes the total contribution $250) 

Vade Mecum Scholarship Fund 75 

Y. P. S. L. Banner 10 

Church's Program Quota for 1947 500 

N. C. Council of Churches 100 

Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief 100 

Restoration of Nurses' Home in Manila 10.0 

It was moved that these allocations be adopted; seconded and 
carried. 

Mrs. Holmes as secretary of Christian Education spoke beauti- 
fully of her work in this department and expressed her earnest 
appreciation of the hearty cooperation shown. She feels that we 
have awakened to what the Educational work really means. She 
announced that the theme of the next Triennial meeting is to be 
"Strength to Build" and that the subjects chosen for mission study 
next year are to be: 
India. 
The Christian and Race. 

The United Thank Offering Custodian, Mrs. Hairston, reported 
the amount for the fall to be $7142; the total on hand to date for 
the Triennial $32,453.33, with another offering to be taken before 
the date set for the General Convention. 

Mrs. Clarkson, as Personnel chairman, said there was one call 
which only the women could answer — a call for help at the Thomp- 
son Orphanage. Women workers are needed there — women of 
the highest type. She made an earnest appeal to the women of the 
Diocese to ask their own parishes if any woman or women were 
willing to do this work. It is a joy to be a mother to the mother- 
less, she said. 

Miss Emma Hall, as Interracial chairman, said she had just come 
to bring a message from the recent National Executive Board 
meeting and that it could be given in three words;— Food Recon- 
struction and Prayer. She urged us to do all we could for the 
starving peoples of the world and said that already seven million 
dollars had been raised for Reconstruction and Advance. The 
theme for the Triennial is from Hymn 494 and it is to be sung at 



The Woman's Auxiliary 37 

the opening of the General Convention. She recommended that 
just two lines of that hymn be used by every woman as a prayer 
every day until the time of the meeting. 

As a member of the Executive Council, Mrs. Bourne said she 
considered it a great privilege to have served in that capacity for 
a year and that she did not understand how anyone could accept 
such a responsibility without this preparation. 

Our Church Periodical Club chairman, Miss Lillie Hill, made an 
appeal for books, books, books. Every branch president in the 
Auxiliary was asked to send in to her the name of their Church 
Periodical Club secretary. 

The president then introduced Miss Laura Clark as our mission- 
ary in China and one for whom we have offered prayers during the 
past trying years. Miss Clark expressed in a few words her ap- 
preciation of the work which the Auxiliary has done for the Dio- 
cese in China in which she has been working; that we have also 
helped with the Grace Chen educational fund. She told us that 
Bishop Chen expects to come to the meeting in Philadelphia. She 
expressed her thanks for our prayers and thoughts. 

Mrs. Peoples said here that the girls from St. Mary's House, 
Greensboro, are corresponding with Grace Chen and that Grace 
writes as though she already knows us all. 

Noon Day prayers were said by the Rev. John Drake of St. 
Paul's Church, Winston-Salem. 

Mrs. W. J. Gordon's meditation on the Woman's Auxiliary Prayer 
was the high-light of the morning session and left us all with much 
food for thought. She said the meditation was a challenge on 
these three questions: What does it mean? What does it mean to 
Me? What am I going to do about it? The spiritual is the basis 
of our work in the Auxiliary. 

Mrs. Peoples spoke of another thing done at the Executive Board 
meeting; That the board had decided to send in the name of Mrs. 
Francis O. Clarkson of Charlotte as our choice for a candidate for 
membership on the National Board and expressed the hope that 
hers would be one of the twenty-four names selected at the Trien- 
nial meeting. 

Mrs. Bouligny, as chairman of the Credentials committee, re- 
ported a quorum present. 

The president announced that the offering from the evening 
service would go to the Rev. Vine Deloria for his work in South 
Dakota. 

Mrs. Landon Hill as chairman of the nominating committee re- 
ported as follows: 

For Vice President — Mrs. Irving Carlyle, Winston-Salem 

For Sec. Christian Education — Mrs. J. W. Huddle, Chapel Hill. 

For Rep. on the Diocesan Council — Mrs. E. F. Lucas, Greensboro. 

Delegates to the Triennial: 

The retiring President, Mrs. E. G. Peoples, Oxford. 



38 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

Mrs. U. T. Holmes, Jr., Chapel Hill. 

The incoming President and the United Thank Offering Custo- 
dian go by virtue of their office.

Miss Hill moved that the nominations be closed; seconded; car- 
ried. 

The next in order was our program for the training of future 
leaders in the Diocese and the speaker for St. Mary's School, Ra- 
leigh, was Miss Myrtle Alston of Henderson. She told us of the 
organization of a Student Auxiliary there. 

A skit by students from the Woman's College at Greensboro 
was given and gave a clear idea of the work being done there. 

Miss Martha Hinkle represented the Youth movement in the 
Diocese. 

The meeting is always happy to listen to Mrs. Whisnant's ac- 
count of the doings at the Thompson Orphanage and her report 
this year was as interesting as usual. She reported a gift of a 
169-acre farm from the Diocese of Eastern Carolina. 

In speaking of Vade Mecum, the Rev. Mr. Smythe said that reg- 
istrations were coming in steadily and they are to accept four 
people from every parish and two from each mission until they 
reach the goal of 80 persons. He urged immediate registration. 
There is to be a wonderful staff of instructors this yeai\ He told 
something of the twenty-five year development program and said 
the camp was rapidly expanding.

The meeting adjourned for the afternoon. 

At 8 P. M. the service was a fitting climax to a busy day and 
the church was filled with interested men and women who listened 
avidly to the Rev. Mr. Deloria's inspiring message. The work 
being done for Indian girls in St. Mary's School, Springfield, S. D., 
was made clear to us and deepened our interest therein and our 
spiritual lives were strengthened by all he had to say. He ex- 
pressed his great appreciation for the help given by the Woman's 
Auxiliary of this Diocese.

7:30 — Celebration of the Holy Communion with the Rt. Rev.

was read and the United Thank Offering presented. 

At 9:30 the meeting reconvened in the church and the last two 
verses of Hymn 261 were sung. Prayers were read by the Rev. 
Mr. Beckwith. 

Mrs. Peoples announced that the offering taken at the evening 
service amounted to $159 which was to be presented to the Rev. 
Mr. Deloria for his work. 

The United Thank Offering Custodian reported that the offering 
at the 7:30 service in the morning amounted to $78.28; the total 
spring offering was $6612.08. 

The President again presented the Rev. Mr. Deloria who told us 
more of what he hoped to do for the boys of his Diocese; also that 
St. Mary's School for girls must close for three months this sum- 
mer unless $500 was forthcoming to defray expenses. Mrs. Rogers 
moved that we turn over $500 from our reserve fund to Mr. Deloria 
for this emergency after he has talked it over with his Bishop. 
Seconded by Mrs. Hall and carried.

for Peace through cooperation. 

Mrs. F. O. Clarkson told of the relation of the Federal Council 
to the program of our Triennial. 



40 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

Mr. Arnold then told us of the work and vital importance of the 
World Council of Churches. 

Reports of Committees 

The report of the committee on resolutions was given by Mrs. 
U. T. Holmes as follows: 

Whereas; The food shortages in Europe are so acute as to call 
for immediate and drastic action by our Government and self- 
denial by the American people, 

BE IT RESOLVED; That this convention send letters to the 
proper authorities in Washington urging speed in sending supplies, 
and promising our cooperation in any method of rationing or similar 
control that will assure more supplies of the needed commodities. 

Mrs. Holmes recommended that this resolution be adopted; sec- 
onded; carried. 

Whereas; It has been felt for a number of years that our pro- 
cedure in electing delegates and alternates to the Triennial meet- 
ing of the Woman's Auxiliary is somewhat confusing; And Whereas, 
in some Dioceses the United Thank Offering Custodian, while she 
is always sent by her Diocese to present its offering, is not neces- 
sarily one of its official delegates, 

BE IT RESOLVED; That this convention ask our president to 
appoint a committee to study this question and to make recommen- 
dations to improve our procedure. 

Mrs. Holmes recommended that this resolution be adopted; sec- 
onded; carried. 

Whereas; Many parishes feel the need of help in planning devo- 
tions for their meetings, 

BE IT RESOLVED; That this convention ask the National Exe- 
cutive Board to prepare and send to all Dioceses material and 
suggestions that will make the worship part of their meetings 
more meaningful. 

Mrs. Holmes recommended that this resolution be adopted; sec- 
onded; carried. 

BE IT RESOLVED; That the president and nominating commit- 
tee make sure that the branches understand our rules regarding 
the election of officers, and stimulate interest on the part of the 
branches in securing a more democratic expression of the mind of 
the Auxiliary. 

Mrs. Holmes recommended that this resolution be adopted; sec- 
onded; carried. 

BE IT RESOLVED; That our president be authorized to take 
action for us on the Bill on Child Welfare recommended by Dr. 
Ellen Winston for our support. 

Mrs. Holmes recommended that this resolution be adopted; sec- 
onded; carried. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 41 

Mrs. W. J. Gordon read the report of the Findings and Courtesy- 
committee. 

The minutes of the meeting were read. 

The Bishop's address was a beautiful one and made us all eager 
to accept our task as women of the Church. 

Noon-day prayers were said by the Rev. Lansing Hicks of Grace 
Church, Weldon. 

The new officers were installed. 

Benediction. 

The new president, Mrs. H. C. Bourne, then declared the 64th

Respectfully submitted, 

Vera M. Cheatham, Secretary.

REPORT OF THE UNITED THANK OFFERING CUSTODIAN 

The year 1945 will forever remain in our memory as one of 
greatest anxiety and the most tremendous relief, for, at least, with 
the cessation of hostilities, the immediate danger to our men and 
women was over and our hearts went out in thanksgiving and our 
offerings, as was to be expected, were more generous than usual. 
Let us not forget, however, that the end of the war did not mean 
the end of suffering and doubt and fear, so the need for money, as 
well as for our prayers, is very great over a large portion of the 
world. Therefore, let us set our goal very high, for where our 
hearts are there will our treasure be also. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 49 

Of course, I am most pleased with the last fall offering of 
$7,142.55 which, with the spring offering of $6,349.20, brought the 
total for 1945 to $13,491.75. 

The offerings for the years 1944 and 1945, with interest, amount 
to $25,919.78. Added to this sum will be the offerings for spring 
and fall of 1946, the whole to be presented at the General Conven- 
tion in Philadelphia in September. 

I want to thank all of my Custodians for their very fine spirit 
of cooperation and plead for a continuance of their help in seeing 
that every Church woman in the Diocese has an opportunity to 
know that her offering of prayer and gifts and joyful service is 
vitally needed to make our United Thank Offering "beautiful by its 
representative character." 



Respectfully submitted, 

Elmer G. Hairston. 



April 27, 1946.

REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

In making a final report of three years of effort in an office, there 
is inevitably a realization of having come short of the would-be 
goal. No matter what the program, nor how well planned, failure 
faces one; perhaps, the higher the intent and purpose, the more 
complete the disappointment when an appraisal is attempted. Prob- 
ably the immensity of the subject THROUGH WORLD EVANGEL- 
ISM TO WORLD FELLOWSHIP IN CHRIST dwarfed the best- 
intentioned efforts. We have had wonderful helps in the splendid 
literature sent out by the National Council and our women have 
availed themselves of it. From District reports, we gather that 
all secretaries have been diligent in assembling and distributing the 
pamphlets from "281." During the past year, I have sent to all 
branches the tracts and pamphlets prepared by the Reconstruction 
and Advance Commission. Besides this, I have prepared a study 
on the Life of St. Paul which was distributed at district meetings 
and sent to those requesting copies. I have also had a column in 
the North Carolina Churchman each month. At the time of the 
fall district meetings, opportunity was given for the discussion of 
materials for study. I feel that we have gotten a firmer grasp on 
the reality of the educational department in the life of the women 
of the Church, these past three years. 

As we go into a new Triennium, we are heartened and stimulated 
because of the Watchword: STRENGTH TO BUILD. We must 
expect to give more time to "searching the scriptures" and to "fer- 
vent praying," looking unto Jesus, the "Author and the Finisher 
of our faith." 

Let us, with St. Paul, say, "I can do all things through Christ, 
who strengtheneth me." 

Caro Adams Holmes, 

Secretary of Christian Education. 

REPORT OF CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

As I look over the reports of the year's work in Christian Social 
Relations, I cannot help but have a real feeling of pride and grati- 
tude for the work our Auxiliary has done. Especially as I am im- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 53 

pressed with the number of study groups held with other churches, 
which indicates a real Christian fellowship. 

The various branches have supported the following Diocesan and 
National objectives: Presiding Bishop's Fund for World Relief, 
Chinese Relief, Victory Clothing Drive for Europe and Asia, Rus- 
sian Kits and Church Christmas Packages. 

The local work in the Diocese was splendid and consisted of con- 
tributing to the Salvation Army, Red Cross and Community Chests ; 
assisting with Vacation Bible School, Teen-age Centers, Girl Scout 
work and Day-School Nurseries; sending boxes to County Homes, 
Supplies and clothing to the Training School for negro girls, Christ- 
mas cheer to hospitals at Fort Bragg, baskets to the needy, flowers 
to local hospitals and clothes to needy school children in public 
schools; and co-operating with other churches in introducing the 
Bible in public schools. 

The Auxiliary branches have also continued their loyal support 
of the Thompson Orphanage with their gifts of money, clothing, 
etc. 

During the coming year, much of our war work will cease, but 
we must not take this to mean that our responsibilities will be les- 
sened. If anything, they will be increased. During the war years, 
when all of us were fired with patriotic fervor, we gave and did as 
a matter of routine, but with the coming of peace, our efforts will 
be of a more thoughtful and sacrificial nature and we, as Chris- 
tian women, will have a real opportunity to show our Social Rela- 
tions by our thoughtfulness of and consideration for our fellow- 
man. Most especially do we want to prove ourselves Christians by 
doing for our overseas neighbors, who have undergone so many 
hardships and who need our help now, both spiritually and finan- 
cially, and will need it for sometime to come. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mollie Carter Spruill. 

REPORT OF THE SUPPLY DEPARTMENT 

It is difficult to give a definite report of the supply department 
for the term of one year as the major part of the work is the filling 
of allotments sent by the National Supply Secretary, Miss Dorothy 
Stabler. These are received in the early fall and completed as soon 
as possible. 

A total of 511 new garments and house hold articles have been 
purchased and sent to Fork Mission Scottsburg, Va., and to the 
Boy's Home, Covington, Va. A check for $50.00 was also sent to 
the Boy's Home to purchase dispensary supplies. 

In addition to what has been sent Fork Mission and the Boy's 
Home our allotment included 56 sheets and 20 other garments and 
articles that have not yet been secured. Every effort is being made 
to purchase these through the supply department and also through 
the institutions who likewise have been unable to make similar pur- 
chases and which are. more than glad to wait until they can be 
obtained. 



54 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

A check for $200.00 was sent to Dr. Lewis B. Franklin to pur- 
chase supplies for St. Timothy's Hospital in Liberia. 

The sum of $125.00 was sent to Dr. Franklin for the Supply Sec- 
retaries Gift Fund which will be recognized as the way personal 
gifts to missionaries are now made. I wish it were possible for 
every auxiliary member to have the privilege of reading the let- 
ters received acknowledging the Christmas gifts this fund makes 
possible. 

The above report is what your gifts to the supply work have made 
it possible for your diocesan supply secretary to do in your name 
but what has been of most importance is the packing and sending 
used garments that has been done in almost every branch of the 
auxiliary. 

Miss G. Bernice Holland, superintendent of St. Mary's School for 
Indian girls has been delighted and very much encouraged by your 
response to her appeal to help outfit her pupils and she asks your 
continued help. 

Mrs. Bob Smith at Fork Mission also reports that her mission 
has been more than grateful for the additional boxes of used 
clothing that she has received. 

The boxes sent to Miss Lillie Hill enable her to accomplish al- 
most unbelievable things through her Thrift Sale and Mrs. Whis- 
nant of the Thompson Orphanage writes most appreciative let- 
ters concerning the help used clothing is toward keeping "her 
family well dressed." 

I am deeply grateful for the confidence you have placed in me by 
electing me your Supply Secretary and assure you that your co- 
operation and interest have made the work of this office a very 
happy privilege. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Catharine M. Thomas

REPORT OF THE DIOCESAN DIRECTOR OF THE CHURCH 
PERIODICAL CLUB 

Since my last report was in form of a challenge of our responsi- 
bility toward our servicemen, at this time a far greater privilege 
and challenge confronts the Church Periodical Club, in the clarion 
call from this great church of ours for Reconstruction and Advance 
work. So the call comes to us from The Church Periodical Club 
Headquarters in New York City for gifts of money to replenish 
libraries in hospitals, Schools, Mission stations in all parts of the 
world, made waste because of the cruel war. St. Luke's Hospital 
in Manila alone has already received 1,100 books and magazines. 
How many of these did your Club help to buy? 

Few reports have come in as much work was done through civic 
clubs, but this should have been reported. 

Appropriate books and magazines are asked for all sorts of in- 
stitutions, subscriptions to magazines, Bibles, testaments. Just as 
I write this an encouraging note comes from the C. P. C. secretary 
of St. Paul's, Winston-Salem, of a fine donation for replacement 
of books in our missions destroyed by war. Who will be next? 

Will you Secretaries not help me to carry a fine report to the 
Triennial from The Church Periodical Club in the Diocese of North 
Carolina? 

Our Lord's last command was to "GO YE." Shall we go to these 
war torn missions in the form of a Bible, some helpful book or 
magazine? 

Respectfully submitted, 
Lillie Hill, 

Church Periodical Director 

REPORT OF THE MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

For the past three years this department has conformed to the 
policy of the National Council by which each diocese assumes re- 
sponsibility, in personal ways, for the missionaries from that dio- 
cese. The general plan made by Mrs. Bourne, my predecessor, has 
been followed, and new ideas and suggestions followed as they 
have come to me from those interested in the growth of this work. 
Newsletters have been sent periodically to the District Correspond- 
ents who have passed on the information to the Branch Corres- 
pondents. An increasing number of letters from the workers shows 
a real appreciation of the interest being shown by those of us at 
home. The Rev. William J. Gordon, Jr., has been sending his own 
newsletters from Alaska during the past year; which have been 
received with great interest. 

A file of all correspondence, reports, and information received 
and sent by me during the past three years has been kept and is 
available to my successor. 

It is gratifying that the end of the war has brought the release 
of many of our missionaries who are now safe in this country. 

Some vacancies in the missions fields have been filled, but there 



56 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

is still need for more workers ; and correspondents are asked to keep 
this need before their Auxiliary Branches and to be ready to help 
potential volunteers with information obtainable from the Church 
Missions House. A new "Calendar for Missions" should be ordered 
and used by every correspondent, each year. 

Please note that, for the first time, a list of the missionaries to 
whom each district is asked to send the usual Christmas check for 
$5.00 is printed in the Year Book. District correspondents should 
refer to this list before the fall meetings. 

I am confident that this department can and will grow in a con- 
ception of what it can mean in the life of our diocese. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Helen W. Brown 

REPORT OF PERSONNEL CHAIRMAN 

The purpose of this committee is to interest the women and girls 
of our diocese in church work as a vocation. To this end, it should 
inform them of jobs within the church open to women, and the 
training and qualifications required. Also, it should acquaint them 
with present vacancies at home and abroad. Particularly in this 
connection, it should act as a liaison between the women in the 
various branches and the Personnel Department of the National 
Woman's Auxiliary. 

Within our own diocese there is a great need for women of the 
church to act as matrons or house mothers at the Thompson Or- 
phanage. There could be no greater opportunity for service than 
that of making a real home for these boys and girls. Since the 
installation of a central dining hall, the task of the house mother 
is much easier. Most of her time can be spent in association with 
the children in her cottage. 

We are asking each branch of the Auxiliary to make an appeal 
this year for any of their members who like work with children and 
are interested in such a position to write to the Superintendent, 
M. D. Whisnant, Thompson Orphanage, Charlotte, N. C. 

Any women interested in other types of professional church work 
are asked to get in touch with the chairman and receive through 
her the material from the National Personnel Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Cama B. Clarkson, 

Personnel Chairman 

REPORT OF REPRESENTATIVE ON THE DIOCESAN 

COUNCIL AND CHAIRMAN OF YOUTH WORK OF 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

The Youth Department of the Diocese is made up of three mem- 
bers of the Diocesan Council, with other members from the Diocese 
at large and representatives from the young people serving as 
associate members. 

A useful precedent has been established whereby one of the two 
representatives from the Woman's Auxiliary on the Diocesan Coun- 
cil will be placed by the Bishop on the Youth Department. The 



The Woman's Auxiliary 57 

President of the Auxiliary will in turn appoint this representative 
to serve as Chairman of Youth Work in the Woman's Auxiliary of 
the Diocese. During the past three years I have served in these of- 
fices, which form a connecting link between the effort of the whole 
church to promote work among young people and the duty of the 
Auxiliary to help in this effort. 

Mrs. E. F. Lucas of Greensboro now succeeds me as Representa- 
tive of the Auxiliary on the Council and a Chairman of Youth 
Work in the Diocesan Auxiliary. If you are a secretary of Youth 
Work you should write to her giving your name and address so 
that you will be on her mailing list for information and instruc- 
tion. Also send your name to your district secretary of Youth 
Work. 

There is not a proportionately large amount of oi'ganized Youth 
Work in our Diocese. However this does not necessarily indicate a 
lack of spiritual vitality among our young people. In many 
parishes, especially the smaller ones, they are an integral part of 
the whole life of the church, taking part in its worship and service. 
A good church, school in these cases can provide the necessary op- 
portunity for study. 

There are many places where there is an opportunity and a need 
for organized Young People's work, and the Auxiliary in these 
parishes should do all in its power to help in starting and sustain- 
ing the work. It is the duty of the secretaries of Young People's 
Work to take the lead in giving this support. 

The Diocesan Council meets four times a year at the residence 
of the Bishop. During my three year term as your representative 
on the Council I have attended all but one of these meetings. It is 
sometime felt that the women contribute little to the deliberation 
of this body but at the very least they are informed at the meetings 
concerning the activities of the church in its Diocesan and National 
organization. This enables them to bring the Auxiliary into closer 
cooperation with the objectives of the whole body of the church. It 
also gives the Council an idea of the work we are doing and the 
help that can be expected from us.

Marion Alston Bourne

REPORT OF THE RESOLUTIONS COMMITTEE 

64th Annual Meeting of Woman's Auxiliary in Diocese 
of North Carolina 

Whereas: The food shortages in Europe are so acute as to call 
for _ immediate and drastic action by our Government and self- 
denial by the American people, Be it resolved that this Convention 



58 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

send letters to the proper authorities in Washington urging speed 
in sending supplies, and promising our cooperation in any method 
of rationing or similar control that will assure more supplies of 
the needed commodities. 

Whereas: It has been felt for a number of years that our proce- 
dure in electing delegates and alternates to the Triennial meeting 
of the Woman's Auxiliary is somewhat confusing, and whereas: 
in some dioceses the United Thank Offering custodian, while she 
is always sent by her diocese to present its Offering, is not neces- 
sarily one of its official delegates, Be it resolved that this Conven- 
tion ask our president to appoint a committee to study this question 
and to make recommendations to improve our procedure. 

Whereas: Many parishes feel the need of help in planning devo- 
tions for their meetings, Be it resolved that this Convention ask the 
National Executive Board to prepare and send to all dioceses ma- 
terial and suggestions that will make the worship part of their 
meetings more meaningful. 

Be it resloved that the President and nominating committee make 
sure that the Branches understand our rules regarding the election 
of officers, and stimulate interest on the part of the Branches in 
securing a more democratic expression of the mind of the Auxiliary. 

Be it resolved that our president be authorized to take action for 
us on the Bill on Child Welfare recommended by Dr. Ellen Win- 
ston for our support.

REPORT OF THE COMMITTEE ON FINDINGS AND 
COURTESY 

There has been a real joy in coming together in an Annual Meet- 
ing after the years of uncertainties, sorrows and thanksgivings; 
to meet in this lovely church in the Easter season when nature her- 
self is expressing the glory of God; and to share in this helpful, 
interesting program. We truly feel that "it is good that we have 
been here." 

We have gathered together what seems to us the heart of the 
meeting under two headings — those things which challenge us for 
the future, and those conditions which encourage us and for which 
we give thanks. 

Challenges : 

1. Greater gifts for the Reconstruction and Advance Fund, and 
an effort to reach those parishes which have not yet had any share 
in this opportunity. 

Our responsibility as housewives, in the desperate need for food 
in Europe and the East, for books to help restore hospitals and 
libraries, and above all, for prayer for our suffering brethren. 

2. In the opportunities for training future leaders. 

3. In the encouragement of minority groups. This has been 



The Woman's Auxiliary 59 

forcefully emphasized by the Rev. Vine Deloria as he presented the 
opportunities for work among the Indians, especially through 
Christian Schools, and told of their response to the message of the 
Gospel. This is the Church's opportunity to heal the wounds in- 
flicted by certain actions of the State. 

4. In an appeal for house mothers at the Thompson Orphanage, 
the remarkable fact being that there is not an Episcopalian serv- 
ing there in this capacity at the present time. 

5. In the searching words of Miss Mary King concerning our 
personnel opportunities and responsibilities in the Province. 

6. In the call for cooperation among Christians of all com- 
munions, as shown by the North Carolina Council of Churches, the 
Federal Council and the World Council. Like charity, this should 
begin at home in a spirit of unity and understanding in our various 
communities. 

7. The challenge through a study of the Auxiliary Prayer that 
the personal life of each woman of the Auxiliary be so thankfully 
related to Christ as Saviour and King, that by "praying fervently, 
laboring diligently and giving liberally" she may be used to reach 
others for the extension of His Kingdom. 

We record with thanksgiving: 

1. The progress of our general work. Tangible evidence of this 
is seen in the balance of $1500 in the treasury, and a splendid in- 
crease in the United Thank Offering. 

2. The "merciful Providence" which has kept Laura Clark dur- 
ing her years of internment, and has brought her safely home. 

3. Our sense of privilege in sharing in the work of the Church 
in China, by having helped in the endowment fund which made pos- 
sible the consecration of Bishop Chen, thereby enabling his diocese 
to have Episcopal supervision when the American Bishop was re- 
called — and for our continued sharing in his family life through 
the Grace Chen Educational Fund. 

4. The beginning of an organized branch of the Woman's Auxi- 
liary at St. Mary's School. 

5. The lovely spirit of home life at the Thompson Orphanage 
under the care of "Father and Mother Whisnant." 

6. The opportunity of helping give the Indian girls in South 
Dakota an opportunity for Christian Education. 

We wish to thank the rector of this parish, the Rev. J. Q. Beck- 
with, and the committees of the Auxiliary who have made such 
careful, thoughtful preparations for this meeting, for their remark- 
able efficiency in carrying out their plans, and for their gracious 
hospitality. We thank them for inviting us to the lovely town of 
Wilson. We wish to express our appreciation to the management of 
Hotel Cherry and to the women of the Methodist and of the Chris- 
tian Church for their cooperation in providing appetizing meals 
in these days of difficult housekeeping. We thank the Rev. Mr. 
Deloria for making the long journey to this diocese; to thank Miss 
King for giving us the privilege of having the president of the 
Province in our midst. We value the contribution that they, and 
all others who have shared in this program, have made. 



60 Sixty-Fourth Annual Report 

We thank Bishop Penick for his faithful attendance at our An- 
nual Meetings and for the challenge and spirit of encouragement 
he always brings. We particularly appreciate the presence of so 
many of the younger clergy of the diocese. 

The retiring officers — the Vice President, Mrs. R. T. B. Little, 
the Educational Secretary, Mrs. W. S. Holmes and the secretary, 
Mrs. C. H. Cheatham, have given us generous and faithful service 
and we give them our sincere thanks. 

We are deeply indebted to Mrs. Peoples for her three years of 
leadership under trying and abnormal war years. Not only has the 
Auxiliary been held together but it has gone forward, as is attested 
by this meeting. Truly she has given liberally of her thought and 
time and talents, of her spiritual insight and of her gracious per- 
sonality. Her contribution to the last Triennial Meeting won her 
recognition in the Church at large, and we pray for her an ever- 
increasing usefulness in the extension of Christ's Kingdom, as she 
hands this gavel now to a worthy successor.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

Every Branch Secretary of Christian Education and her com- 
mittee has the following three tasks: 

1. Plan Program for 1946-1947 

Mimeographed Suggested Topics have been sent to each Branch 
Secretary by the Diocesan Secretary. It is important that you 
have planned a well balanced program of Worship, Study, Service, 
Gifts and Fellowship in the five fields of Action: the Parish, Com- 
munity, Diocese, Nation, and World. 

2. Prepare to carry out the planned program 

Get book lists from the sources that follow. Consult local li- 
braries for materials for Mission studies. Keep up monthly with 
The North Carolina Churchman and the President's monthly let- 
ters for suggested materials. Order well in advance the materials 
you will need. 

3. Plan ways to present the Programs at monthly and Study 
Group meetings. 

A variety of presentations will be most interesting. Perhaps you 
can have some book reports, talks by members or outside speakers, 
leader group discussions, dramas, movies, exhibits, etc. Assign sub- 
jects far enough ahead of meetings so that really interesting and 
effective meetings will result.

ITEMS SUGGESTED FOR CONSIDERATION IN PREPARING 
THE COUNCIL'S 1947 LEGISLATIVE PROGRAM 

1. Adequate provision for the enforcement of the compulsory school 
attendance law through the State Department of Public In- 
struction. 

2. Provision for modernizing the jail system and for bringing it up 
to approved minimum standards. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 69 

These two items are unfinished business on which we will want 
to continue to work until we secure constructive action. 

3. More adequate provision for medical care and hospitalization. 

4. Minimum wage and hour law. 

5. Provision for financing cancer control clinics set up under the 
State Board of Health. 

These are new items which need to be presented to your or- 
ganization for study and action at your next state convention 
or executive board meeting. 

6. Continued support of the program to provide adequate care and 
treatment of white and Negro feebleminded children. 

This item was included for continued support since no definite 
appropriation for buildings were included in the bills passed 
by the recent legislature. The reason for the failure to in- 
clude specific appropriations was the uncertainty of building 
conditions at this time, and that may be taken care of by a 
special session of the Legislature.

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then 
let him say: 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as 
Diocesan Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally re- 
ceived and admitted into their respective offices in your presence, 
and that we should ask the blessing of God upon them for their 
support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you 
have laid upon them. 

O Lord, save these thy servants. 
Who put their trust in thee. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 73

And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto thee. 
Let us pray. 



Our Father 



Direct us, O Lord, in all our doings, with thy most gracious 
favour, and further us with thy continual help; that in all our 
works begun, continued and ended in thee, we may glorify thy 
holy name, and finally, by thy mercy, obtain everlasting life: 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give thy Grace, we 
humbly beseech thee, to these thy servants who have been chosen to 
serve thee in the special work for which they have been selected; 
Grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love 
in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportuni- 
ties for service, to the glory of thy great name and the benefit of 
thy holy Church! Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Bless us O God, with the vision of thy Being and thy Beauty, that 
in the strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God our Father and 
the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore.

PRAYERS 




FOR UNITY 

God of all nations, 

We beseech thee to bring that day nearer 
When our country shall be truly one, 
When every barrier shall be broken down, 
When no man shall work for his own selfish good. 
When no man shall defraud or oppress his neighbour. 
When no man shall reckon his neighbour worse than himself, 
When none shall be despised or outcast, 

But all shall be free to work in equal manhood for thee and their 
country.

Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special care for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and draw us 
into closer friendship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy kingdom through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR THE CHURCH'S MISSION 

Pour out, we beseech Thee, Lord, Thy Spirit upon Thy Church,

and hate into the healing of the world, proclaim, we beseech thee, 
to the peoples of the nations the things which belong to their true 
peace ; that they may rise with a single voice to forgive past wrong,

thee and thy kingdom of love, who livest with the Father and the 
Holy Spirit, one God, world without end. Amen.

Foreword 



This little book is an unusual combination. It is both practical 
and devotional. For Auxiliary members, especially for officers, 
it is an indispensable handbook, containing full, accurate and 
important information concerning the personnel, program and 
organization of the Auxiliary in this Diocese. It is also a treasury 
of devotion. Here are the prayers that enrich and sustain the 
spiritual life of thousands of faithful women. Here are inter- 
cessions that are helpful for social or ordinary occasions. Merely 
as a manual of prayers, new and old, it should be kept near one's 
kneeling place.

Bishop of North Carolina 



PRAYERS 




THE WOMAN'S AUXILIARY PRAYER 

Almighty God, our heavenly Father, bless, we pray thee, our 
work for the extension of Thy kingdom, and make us so thankful 
for the precious gift to us of Thy beloved Son, that we may pray 
fervently, labor diligently, and give liberally to make him known 
to all nations as their Saviour and their King: through the same 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR MISSIONS 

Almighty God, help us, we pray thee, to shed abroad the light 
of Thy Church in all the world. Give us greater zeal for Thy king- 
dom, that we may offer abundantly our prayers, our work, and our 
gifts; so that the earth may be filled with the knowledge of Thy 
glory, as the waters cover the sea; through Thy Son, Jesus Christ 
our Lord. Amen. 

FOR GUIDANCE OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 

God, forasmuch as without Thee we are not able to please Thee, 
mercifully grant that Thy Holy Spirit may in all things direct and 
rule our hearts; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL RELATIONS 

Guide us, Master, in all the perplexities of our modern life, 
and in Thine own good time bring us together in love and unity, 
making the Kingdoms of this world Thy Kingdom as Thou wiliest. 
Who dost live and reign in the Heavenly Jerusalem, the light and 
joy of the citizens of that holy land. Amen. 

FOR THE UNITED THANK OFFERING 

O Lord, Our Heavenly Father, we pray Thee to send forth more 
laborers into Thy harvest, and to grant them Thy special care for 
every need. Guard and guide the workers in the field, and draw us 
into closer friendship with them. Dispose the hearts of all women 
everywhere to give gladly as Thou hast given to them. Accept from 
grateful hearts our United Thank Offering of prayer and gifts and 
joyful service; and bless it to the coming of Thy kingdom through 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



6 Sixty-Fifth Annual Report 

FOR CHRISTIAN EDUCATION 

O God, who has sent Thy beloved Son to be unto us the Way, the 
Truth and the Life, grant that we, looking unto Him may set for- 
ward the teaching power of Thy Church, to the nurture of Thy 
children, the increase of Thy Kingdom and the glory of Thy Son, 
Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

THE PRAYER FOR THE SUPPLY WORK 

Almighty God, who hast taught us by Thy Son, Jesus Christ, that 
It is more blessed to give than it is to receive, look with favor, we 
beseech Thee, upon the supply work of Thy Church, especially in 
this Diocese. Touch our hearts with compassion for the poor, the 
sick and homeless, and make us strong to lift their burdens with 
our ready gifts and service; through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen. 

PRAYER FOR THE THOMPSON ORPHANAGE 

Almighty God, who are the Father of the fatherless, send Thy 
blessings upon the Thompson Orphanage, instituted in Thy name. 
Give patience and wisdom to the officers, teachers and matrons of 
this home, that they may faithfully discharge the duties committed 
to their charge. Let the boys and girls grow in grace and earnest- 
ness, day by day. Strengthen their bodies, enlighten their minds, 
purify their hearts and sanctify their wills. Bless all who have 
contributed to this institution, and raise up, we pray Thee, a never- 
failing succession of benefactors whose names may be perpetuated 
through all generations, as a blessed memory, and their good deeds 
be accepted; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR THE EVERY MEMBER CANVASS 

God our Father, who providest for thy children in advance of 
their needs, bless we pray the work of our Every Member Can- 
vass, and grant us all to share in it with glad and willing hearts 
for the sake of thy Kingdom, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

FOR DIOCESAN MISSIONARIES 

O Lord, without whom our labor is but lost, and with whom Thy 
little ones go forth as the mighty: We humbly beseech thee to 
prosper all works in thy church undertaken according to thy holy 

will, (especially the work of ) and 

grant to thy labourers a pure intention, patient faith, sufficient suc- 
cess upon earth, and the blessedness of serving thee in heaven; 
through Jesus Christ our Lord. .Amen. 

FOR VOLUNTEERS 

Our Father, if it be Thy will, put it into the heart of some young 
man or woman of this parish to work for the advancement of Thy 
Kingdom in some foreign land. Inspire us, we pray Thee, with such 
love and faith that we may be willing to go unto the uttermost 
parts of the earth in answer to Thy call. This, and all things 
which are for Thy glory, we ask for Christ's sake. Amen. 



The Woman's Auxiliary < 

FOR USE BEFORE AND AT THE TIME OF THE ELECTION 
OF OFFICERS 

O Holv Spirit Whose guidance and inspiration alone can enable 
us to fulfill the Will of God, teach us, we pray Thee, the dignity of 
cur missionary work, and give us grace to choose as our leaders 
those whom Thou dost call to Thy faithful service. To those so 
chosen give a spirit of reverence in the exercise of their office, and 
to all of us a deep sense of our obligation in the discharge of every 
duty, to do all the glory of God through Jesus Christ our Lord. 
Amen. 

BENEDICTION 

May the blessings of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the 
Holy Spirit, rest upon us and upon all work and worship done in 
His Name. May He give us light to guide us, courage to support 
us, and love to unite us, now and forevermore. Amen. 

SERVICE OF 

INSTALLATION OF OFFICERS FOR THE 

WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 

Let those who have been elected stand before the Bishop and then 
let him say : 

It is right and fitting that those who have been duly elected as 
Diocesean Officers of the Woman's Auxiliary should be formally re- 
ceived and admitted into their respective offices in your presence, 
and that we should ask the blessing of God upon them for their 
support and guidance in the performance of the duties which you 
have laid upon them. 

Lord, save these thy servants. 
Who put their trust in thee. 
Send them help from the holy place. 
And evermore mightily defend them, 
O Lord, hear our prayer. 
And let our cry come unto thee. 
Let us pray. 

Our Father . . . 

Direct us, Lord, in all our doings, with thy most gracious 
favour, and further us with thy continual help; that in all our 
works begun, continued and ended in thee, we may glorify thy 
holy name, and finally, by the mercy, obtain everlasting life: 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 

Almighty God, the giver of all good gifts; give thy Grace, we 
humbly beseech thee, to these thy servants who have been chosen to 
serve thee in the special work for which they have been selected; 
Grant unto them zeal and earnestness in the performance of their 
office; wisdom and strength to meet each day their task; and love 
in the doing of it; and give them the vision to see their opportuni- 
ties for service, to the glory of thy great name and the benefit of 
thy holy Church! Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen. 



8 Sixty-Fifth Annual Report 

Bless us O God, with the vision of thy Being and thy Beauty, that 
in the strength of it we may work without haste and without rest; 
Through Jesus Christ our Lord. 

I receive and admit you to the office of Be 

faithful, zealous, sincere and humble in all your tasks, and may the 
Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God our Father and 
the guiding fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you evermore. 
Amen. 

Benediction 

The Father, Son, and Holy Ghost bless, preserve and keep you, in 
ycur work in your worship, this day and always, through Jesus 
Christ our Lord. Amen.

ANALYSIS OF YEAR OF WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
OF DIOCESE 

1. Fiscal year of Diocese and branches runs Jan. 1 to Dec. 31 
because it must co-incide with National Council fiscal 
year. 

2. Year of active study and action runs from 1st meeting in 
Fall (Sept.) to last meeting before summer recess (June). 
Reason : It must conform to the plans and material sent out 
from National headquarters, and to the Diocesan Annual 
Meeting which must be held in the favorable weather of 
Spring. 

3. Summer is preparation period for activities to follow — it 
is the inactive first part of a new year of study and action. 

4. New officers should be elected at a branch meeting prior 
to Annual Diocesan Meeting. Reasons: (a) New officers 
are taken into consideration in the election of delegates 
to the Annual Meeting, (b) New officers' names can be 
given on report of the year's study and action for pub- 
lishing in year book. 

5. New officers should be installed at last meeting before sum- 
mer recess (June meeting). A few branches meet during 
summer. Their officers should also be installed at end of 
June meeting. 

6. Officers installed at June meeting spend summer preparing 
for coming year of activity. Program of Christian Educa- 
tion should be prepared during this time. 

7. New president presides at 1st Fall meeting (Sept.). For 
branches meeting during summer she presides at July meet- 
ing. 



10 Sixty-Fifth Annual Report 

8. Report blanks are sent out to branches in March Diocesan 
president's letter. Reports cover period from previous 
July 1st to May 1st (as late in year as possible and yet 
in time for publishing in year book.) Reports are mailed 
back to District Chairman and Diocesan president in May. 
List of recently elected officers sent in on report then be- 
comes correct in year book for longest period of year pos- 
sible. 

9. Year book is sent out in August, before if possible. 

10. New treasurer is actually installed in middle of fiscal year, 
along with other officers, but this is much easier for her 
than taking office in January when she would immediately 
have to set up new pledges and budget. 

11. Annual Diocesan Meeting is the middle of April. This con- 
forms to date of Diocesan Convention of the Church, and 
to the Bishop's schedule. Year's reports are not available 
for Diocesan officers for Annual Meeting, but "reports" at 
this meeting could consist of plans for the future and a 
general picture of work.

CHRISTIAN EDUCATION FOR EACH AUXILIARY MEMBER 

Three questions concerning Christian Education need to be dis- 
cussed and considered: What is Christian Education? What is each 
woman's responsibility in Christian Education? What is the pro- 
gram of Christian Education for the Auxiliary for the coming 
year? 

Christian Education is concerned with aiding us in our approach 
tf> God through worship, prayer, and praise, and with imparting 
to us inspiration and information in order that each one of us 
may be trained and guided in Christian Living. Christian Educa- 
tion permeates all of the worship, business, study and service of 
cur Auxiliary life. Essential to this conception of Christian Edu- 
cation is the growth of the individual. You and I are being train- 
ed in Christian living. 

Secretaries of Christian Education and all other officers as- 
sume the task of preparing well balanced and integrated meetings 
that give each of us opportunity for growth along the Christian 
way of life through worship, study, service and fellowship. 

Few of us, however, are officers — what then is each woman's 
share of responsibility in Christian Education if each is to grow? 



The Woman's Auxiliary 15 

Attendance at meetings, listening to programs of talk and study 
is not enough. Too often we merely expose ourselves to Christian 
Education. Occasional moments of participation as speakers and 
leaders, occasional turns at service is not enough. We all know that 
we learn to do by doing, but this "doing" must be daily if we are 
to really learn. Exercising our vote and voice in meetings is not 
enough. We give our support to group action. There is grave 
danger that we are misusing the organized body of Woman's 
Auxiliary as corporate group study and action in place of indivi- 
dual study and action. 

Each of us should receive and take from the meetings the help 
and information offered; ponder well how this help and informa- 
tion can be used by each of us; then act in daily practice that each 
of us may gain skill in Christian living. 

Here are three suggested steps necessary if you and I are to 
receive aid in Christian living from our meetings : 

1. Preparation for meetings 

Daily personal prayer and meditation for guidance and 
thankfulness. 

Know the planned program. Use the yearbook. Know busi- 
ness that is to be transacted. 
Read in preparation for the programs. 

Attend meetings with the intention of receiving help that will 
lead to personal study and action. 

2. Participation in our meetings 
Let us be completely receptive. 

Note questions and suggestions we personally wish to follow 
up. 

Making notes is a good way to help us remember. 
Note requests of service, gifts, action that you personally 
will consider. 

Let us grow away from practices of taking turns and letting 
others do the services. 

Share our thoughts and questions in the meeting. 
If we have really prepared we can contribute. Timidity fre- 
quently is a matter of ignorance. 

3. Follow up the meetings 

This step is perhaps the most necessary and vital, for in it 
the individual really grows. 
Put inspiration and information into action. 
Read further on subjects discussed. Church papers will give 
invaluable help. Interpret secular literature in a true Chris- 
tian light. 

Comply with requests, serve and pray for the success of our 
work. 

For this year's study and action we have been turning our at- 
tention toward seeking the Strength to Build a better world. For 
the next two years may we find such growing Spiritual, Moral and 
Mental strength that this better world need no longer be a dream, 
but be begun as an actuality. 

If we do feel a deep concern over the world. If we admit that 
each of us shares the responsibility for the world's choas and there- 
tore the equal responsibility for making a better world. If we 



16 Sixty-Fifth Annual Report 

humbly acknowledge that we have followed the desires of our own 
hearts. If we recognize that God will build a fine world if we allow 
Him to use us. Then we accept the urgent need to pray, study 
and act as individual instruments of God. 

There are four areas for study and action; The Christian Faith, 
The Christian Home and Family, The Christian World, and The 
World Mission of the Christian Church. Within these four areas we 
find summed up our failures in Christian Living but we also find 
hope of future success. From these areas and through them we 
will find that God will give us the Strength to Build a better 
world. . "Ye shall receive power after that the Holy Spirit is 
come upon you, and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusa- 
lem and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost 
part of the earth". 

Let us, with humble and contrite hearts, sincerely and earnest- 
ly examine these four areas over and over so that we may each 
be a witness and a builder of God's world.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE 

65th ANNUAL MEETING — WOMAN'S AUXILIARY 
Church of the Holy Innocents, Henderson, April 15, 1947 

As your President I extend greetings to you at this the 65th 
Annual Meeting of the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese of 
North Carolina. The last time we met here in the Church of the 
Holy Innocents in 1932 we were celebrating the 50th anniversary 
of our founding. A reading of the records of that meeting recalls 
many of the Saints of God who made an imprint on the life of the 
Auxiliary in our Diocese. They set a high standard for us, with 
a basic belief that we must always go on "from strength to strength 
in a life of perfect service." 

The Triennial Meeting of 1946 gave us the theme for three 
years: "Give us O God the Strength to Build", and sent out a 
Message to us which contains this passage — "God is Power and 
they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength". It is 
this passage which gives us the keynote for our 1947 Diocesan 
Annual Meeting: God is Power. God is Power translated through 
the church and through us as members of the church. He is Pow- 
er translated through us by means of our sacramental life within 
the church, as symbolized by the early celebration of the Holy 
Communion when we present our United Thank Offering. God is 
Power through the missionary program of the church, as will be 
made evident by the message which our speakers on the program 
bring to us. God is Power by means of souls who are themselves 
beacon lights of His truth — and by means of the historic ministry 
of the Church as represented by the Bishops speaking to us with 
the authority of their episcopal consecration. 

During the past year it has been inevitable that our work should 
show some material evidence of progress. Our branches number 
108, three of them organized this year. Our membership is ap- 
proximately 3,275. In January, 28 branches made a total increase 
in their pledges to the Diocesan budget of $734.00. We ended the 
fiscal year of 1946 with a surplus of $1,804.37, due in part to the 
fact that Diocesan officers did not use the complete amount set 
aside in the budget for Administration. We have concerned our- 
selves in our parishes and in our Diocesan organization with the 
giving of funds for the Church's Program Quota. In our branches 
we will continue to show a polite but firm interest in the way our 
vestries allocate parish funds. 

There is an increased interest in serious study programs. By 
study and by action we have shown a thoughtful interest in our 
Diocesan membership on the N. C. Legislative Council and in the 
social legislation which the Council sponsored. 

There is a tendency on the part of our members to take stock 
of the organization of their branches, to evaluate it realistically, 
and to take steps to improve it. There is also a noticeable demand 
that District and Diocesan organization be efficient and effective. 
This portends strength for the future. While we are heartened 
by these signs of progress, we are conscious of the fact that we 
are far from our potential strength. This fact should serve to keep 
us from being satisfied with our efforts. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 25 

The challenge of the Woman's Auxiliary is always that the life 
of the woman in the Auxiliary must be constantly from self out- 
ward — from self through the Church to God and from self through 
the Church to the world. We cannot hope to win the woman who de- 
veloped so much strength during the war years if our branches 
are content to exist as groups with merely local interest. We must 
give our members a sense of being necessary to the program of 
the whole Church. The standards of our branches must be high 
enough to help us meet the constant demands that we think in world 
terms. The framework of our organization with all of its depart- 
ments can provide the means if we but use our imiginations with a 
will to make our Auxiliary serve God's purposes through His 
Church. I shall continue to urge you to use such simple devices 
in your meetings as having every officer at a meeting give some 
information about the work of the Church relating to her depart- 
ment, in the Diocese and the world outside. This device is based 
on the faithful reading of books and church periodicals. The infor- 
mation contained in the Diocesan president's monthly letter must 
reach every member of the Auxiliary. Keeping our members in- 
formed in this way about the affairs of the Diocese is one method 
of developing leadership of the District and the Diocese. 

As we view the over all program of the future let us keep in 
mind certain safeguards. When we pray, "Give us O God Strength 
to build", let us remember that it is not actually we who build 
but the Holy Spirit working through us Who gives us a glorious 
share in the task. As we work to interest our members in the 
Missionary Program of the Church and to increase the amount of 
our U.T.O., let us remember that our gifts must proceed from a 
love of God and thankfulness for His goodness to us — that they 
must be offered for His blessing before they can reach their full 
power. Our best intellectual effort must be used to carry out a 
challenging study program, but we must bear in mind that it is 
not our own intellectual efforts that brings us an inner light and 
Peace but the inner light and Peace of the Holy Spirit that en- 
ables us to know and understand the Truth. As we concern our- 
selves with the need and suffering of the world, we must regard 
ourselves as instruments of the Church, in need of her constant 
guidance and the grace which her blessed Sacrament of the Holy 
Communion provides.

pel Hill; Mrs. R. B. Rogers, Raleigh; and Mrs. B. B. Williams, Jr.,

nate their own delegate". Miss Nan Clark moved that the report

32 Sixty-Fifth Annual Report 

RESOLUTIONS ADOPTED AT ANNUAL MEETING 1947 

Whereas: we believe that the only hope of the abolition of war 
lies in the mutual understanding and cooperation among the Na- 
tions of the World, and whereas, the United Nations is at present 
the machinery for affecting such mutual understanding and coop- 
eration, therefore, 

Be it resolved: that we, the members of the Woman's Auxil- 
iary in the Diocese of North Carolina, in convention assembled, 
hereby reaffirm our faith in the United Nations as an instrument 
of lasting peace. 



Resolution on Legislation 

Whereas: the National Executive Board of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary has gone on record as favoring the extension of reciprocal 
trade agreements, and 

Whereas: the National Executive Board of the Woman's Aux- 
iliary favors the admission to the United States of the greater 
number of displaced and stateless persons than is provided under 
the present quotas, and 

Whereas: the National Executive Board calls upon the women 
of the Church to exercise their Christian citizenship by learning 
about these matters, forming their own opinions, and expressing 
those opinions to their Senators and Representatives in Congress, 

_ Be it resolved: that we request our Diocesan Secretary of Chris- 
tian Social Relations to include these subjects in our 1947 pro- 
gram of study. 

Whereas: the North Carolina Council of Churches is sponsoring 
a drive for material aid for overseas relief to be conducted April 
20-May 11, therefore, 

Be it resolved: that we, the Woman's Auxiliary of the Diocese 
of North Carolina, in convention assembled, pledge our hearty 
support, corpoiately and individually, to this effort to the point 
of initiating the drive in our own communities where necessary. 

Whereas: the Diocesan Officers have repeatedly requested that 
Branch Officers be elected immediately prior to the Annual Meet- 
ing, therefore, 

Be it resolved: that this practice be regarded hereafter as man- 
datory. 

Where as: various members of this assembly have expressed a 
desire for more democratic election procedure, therefore, 

Be it resolved: that in the future the Nominating Committee 
consider the advisability of presenting at least two names for 
each office. 

a J^%iil e *°J Ve ? : *** - the Diocesan Executive Board consider the 
Sams a Chairman for the devotional part of our pro- 



The Woman's Auxiliary 33 

Whereas: we are shocked to hear of the death of a former Dio- 
cesan President, Mrs. W. W. Way, 

Be it resolved: that a message of affection and sympathy from 
this body be sent to her family.

REPORT OF UNITED THANK OFFERING CUSTODIAN 

Ours is a United Thank Offering. The City that we have set 
out to build — "The City that hath stood too long a dream" — can 
be built only by the united efforts and prayers of all mankind; 
no one man can build it alone. And so let us bend every effort 
toward that goal which, however "dimly seen," is attainable, so 
that in the end "all men may enjoy together what together they 
have had the joy of building." 

The Budget adopted at the Triennial has been an interesting 
part of our study this winter for it reveals the universal scope 
of the work of the United Thank Offering. Leaflets describing 
the work being done in many parts of the world, toward which 
the United Thank Offering contributes, are to be had by writing 
to Miss Edna B. Beardsley, 281 Fourth Ave., New York 10, N. Y. 
Write for Building Stones of the City, 10c. 

It is our aim to have every woman in the Church own and use 
a Blue Box, whether or not she is an active member of the Wom- 
an's Auxiliary. It is potentially an offering from all Church- 
women everywhere. 

I am happy to report that the interest in the United Thank 
Offering is increasing, especially among the younger women of 
the Church, and I attribute this largely to the splendid work of 
the District and Branch Custodians. There has been a demand 
for program materials and an interest in learning what the United 

Thank Offering is. These materials are readily available from 
Miss Beardsley who is always prompt to give any requested in- 
formation about her department. 

I am pleased to say that envelopes for the presentation of the 
individual offerings are to be had once more and should be ob- 
tained by the Branch Custodians in plenty of time to be dis- 
tributed to every woman who will make an offering. 

Money actually on hand for the Spring of 1947 amounts to $8,- 
047.10, of which $266.22 was brought from fall as it came too late 
to be presented at Philadelphia. This is a splendid beginning for 
the new Triennium and one of which we can be justly, if humbly, 
proud. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Elmer G. Hairston 

United Thank Offering Custodian

REPORT OF SECRETARY OF CHRISTIAN 
SOCIAL RELATIONS 

It is impossible to give a complete report of the year's ac- 
complishments of Christian Social Relations as so many of these 
accomplishments are of an intangible nature. By that I mean 
that so many little things were done by individuals, groups and 
even parishes on a spontaneous basis to meet situations as they 
arose, and no report of those activities was made because they 
seemed too insignificant to those doing htem to even mention, and 
no credit for them was desired. Yet, they are accomplishments 
of which Christian Social Relations is justly proud and, when 
added to the big things, make quite a successful year's work. 

We have contributed to the Presiding Bishop's fund for World 
Relief with money, food and clothing. Some auxiliaries quite suc- 
cessfully conducted city-wide campaigns for relief in Europe. We 
sent $206.00 to the Seaman's Church Institute for Christmas 
kits for Merchant Seamen and sent thirteen filled kits. 

Many auxiliaries have clothed one or more children in the 
Thompson Orphanage. Some have bought medicine for the poor; 
given Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets to the needy; assisted 
with Teen-Age Centers and Girl Scout work; sent boxes to County 
Homes, etc., and have co-operated with the United Council of 
Churches in its program. 

It is my sincere wish that we continue to support the National 
Council in whatever projects it approves. However, there is much 
more to Christian Social Relations than fulfilling the projects as- 
signed by the National Council. Every community has some proj- 
ect waiting to be undertaken, and it is the obligation of the local 
branches to find that project, undertake it and fulfill it without 
instructions or advice from the National Council or this depart- 
ment. Nevertheless, I am always available for both recommen- 
dations and advice. 

I wish to give my whole-hearted thanks to all the district 
and local secretaries for their splendid co-operation. After all, it 
is they who deserve the credit for the accomplishments through- 
out the year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mollie Carter Spruill, Secretary 
Christian Social Relations. 



The Woman's Auxiliary 45 

REPORT OF SECRETARY OF SUPPLY 

The office of Supply Secretary in the diocese of North Carolina 
becomes more interesting each day and as the task of Reconstruc- 
tion and Advance progresses through the world the need for each 
phase of the work done through the Supply department becomes 
more imperative. 

Supply work is the channel through which auxiliary women pro- 
vide new and used clothing for missions and schools, house hold and 
institutional linens and supplies, hospital garments and sick room 
necessities. 

These are either made or purchased by our branches to aid the 
workers in the mission field and this gives us an opportunity to 
share more closely in the work of many mission fields. 

The women of this diocese need only to be told where there is 
an opportunity for them to serve, so our first task is to present 
the needs of our missions to each branch. To accomplish this 
your diocesan secretary asks the help of every district and branch 
secretary that we may know and then complete every request and 
allotment in a truly Christian spirit and in so doing come closer 
"Unto God's City" and gain by serving "The Strength to Build." 

Through your pledges and gifts to the Supply depai'tment the 
following has been accomplished: 

1. A contribution of $110.00 to the Supply Secretaries Gift Fund 

has been made. This fund is sent in place of personal boxes 
to missionaries whose salaries are not yet adjusted to new 
conditions and to retired missionary clergy and lay workers. 

2. A check for $275.00 has been sent to Dr. Lewis B. Franklin for 
Bishop Binstead and his work in the Philippine Islands. A 
total of 354 new garments and articles have been purchased 
and sent for this work. In addition each branch has been 
asked to contribute used clothing suitable for this mission and 
many boxes have been reported for this field. 

3. St. Mary's School for Indian girls has long been a favorite 
project in our diocese and this year it has been our joy to 
send supplies for their dormitories as a part of our national 
allotment. A total of 456 articles and a case of paper nap- 
kins has been shipped to them. 

The splendid boxes of used clothing that go to St. Mary's School 
from North Carolina have been so useful and are always so care- 
fully selected and packed that Miss Charlotte Maxon, the acting 
head mistress does not hesitate to say that they constitute one of 
their strongest morale builders. 

In addition to the mission fields outside of our diocese there are 
two other places where we send used clothing. To Miss Lillie 
Hill in Leaksville for her work and for her to use in her "Thrift 
Sales." Mrs. Whisnant of the Thompson Orphanage assures us 
that without the used clothing sent the orphanage she would have 
a most difficult time keeping "her large family well dressed." She 
also asks for used household items such as curtains, rugs and 
shades. 



46 Sixty-Fifth Annual Report 

We look forward to a year in which there will be unlimited op- 
portunities for real service. Our task is to let every woman in 
the diocese know that she may have the privilege of sharing in 
the work of the Supply Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Catharine M. Thomas.

REPORT OF REPRESENTATIVE ON DIOCESAN COUNCIL 
AND CHAIRMAN OF YOUTH WORK 

Since my election in 1946 as your representative on the Diocesan 
Council, I have attended all four meetings held at the Bishop's 
residence. At each meeting your president makes a report on auxili- 
ary matters, a report which is always enthusiastically received. 
That report constitutes the major contribution of the women to 
the meeting because we feel too inadequate to take a very active 
part in the discussions of that body. However, the council learns 
of auxiliary affairs and we, the three women on the council, learn 
a great deal about the Diocesan and National Church, thus widen- 
ing our scope of knowledge beyond our local branches. Through 
the knowledge thus gained, I hope to be able to bring you into 
closer touch and cooperation with the overall objectives of the 
whole body of the church. 

By virtue of this office, I automatically represent you in the 
Diocesan department of Youth, and am your chairman of Youth 
Work in the Auxiliary. These two appointments go hand in hand, 
and I serve as a liason officer between the two, trying to learn from 
the Chairman of the Diocesan Department of Youth and his com- 
mittee in what ways the members of the auxiliary can best assist 
in the work of his department, and, through my District Chair- 
men, seeing to it that each and every one of you gets this informa- 
tion. There are still a few branches in the diocese without a secre- 
tary of youth work. I urge each District Chairman to rectify this 
situation as soon as possible! 



The Woman's Auxiliary 47 

I have received most gratifying reports from many district 
chairmen of the renewed interest in the Youth Work in their 
branches. Space prevents a tabulation of the organizations and 
the activities involving the youth of all ages. Suffice it to say that 
1 am encouraged at the excellent response my request for reports 
has brought, and I am hoping that at the end of another year that 
response will come from all branches through their respective 
chairmen. 

The National Schedule for Youth for 1946-47 called for the 
continued stressing of the Rule of Life for Individual Young 
People, the Epihany Feast of Lights to be conducted by them, the 
observance of National Youth Sunday, and the annual offering 
next October. There was also the Corporate Communion for Young 
People, April 27th, which was widely observed in our diocese. As 
you all know, the first national youth convention ever held by the 
Episcopal Church took place in Philadelphia last September, at 
which our diocese was represented by two counsellors and two 
young people. 

The crying need in the Youth Department is for good and ca- 
pable consellors — consellors who will really learn the job, work at 
it, and stay with it. This is the most important part you women 
can take in your branches. And in these days of ever increasing 
juvenile delinquency, it is more important than ever that you 
organize the unorganized youth of your church and your commun- 
ity. Let them feel that they are important and have a very special 
part to play. Give them responsible duties of their own and get 
them to assist the auxiliary in its undertakings, such as serving 
suppers, collecting clothes for overseas, wrapping, packing, and 
mailing them, or in any other jobs which suit their capabilities. See 
that there is a report on their work made at every auxiliary meet- 
ing, in order to keep their presence and needs and activities before 
you always. 

Another very important thing the women of the auxiliary can 
do is to influence the youth of the church to work in religious 
fields. So many of our branches are desperate for trained workers 
for the young people. The money is available but trained workers 
are not. Urge the college boy and girl of your parish to undertake, 
this as his life's work. Excellent training for this can be begun 
at an early age in our diocesan camps and conferences. It would 
be splendid if every branch could be represented by a young per- 
son at Delaney and Vade Mecum each summer. 

I ask for your increased interest and cooperation, strengthened 
by your prayers, for this all-important work of our church — The 
development of your youth program and the bringing of young 
people to Christianity. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Mabel Simpson Lucas. 



48 Sixty-Fifth Annual Report 

REPORT OF MISSIONARY CORRESPONDENT 

Missionaries affiliated with the Diocese of North Carolina have 
been made to feel that we of the Diocese share with them in their 
joys and in their sorrows, as well as in their victories or de- 
feats. Through constant and united prayers for them, they know 
they are not forgotten. Tangible gifts, cards and letters have 
also kept us in close contact with them. 

Our retired Missionaries have given the best years of their 
lives to the life of the Church. We remember them also. 

The noble men and women who are doing their work in the 
name of Our Lord and in the name of His Church are our respon- 
sibility for we sent them out. We should rally liberally to their 
support. 

Our opportunities for missionary expansion and enlargement 
are tremendous. Let us pray that our young people may see the 
need for complete surrender to definite Christian service and re- 
spond. Let us pray that our people may catch the vision and be- 
come more liberal in their offerings to these urgent needs. Truly 
the fields are white unto harvest. Our Church must meet the 
challenge of the times. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Mrs. Victor R. Johnson, 
Missionary Correspondent 



REPORT OF REPRESENTATIVE ON NORTH CAROLINA 
LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL 

Your Representative on the N. C. Legislative Council hopes that 
your study in your parish branch of the Woman's Auxiliary has 
made you so law conscious that you are a well informed group on 
how our 5 point program of legislation finally fared in the recent 
session of the N. C. Legislature. The points of our program that 
failed in this session will not die, but will be pushed in the session 
of 1949. It is good to raise teachers salaries but we must see that 
through law enforcement each child avails himself of the op- 
portunity for better, education. This is just one example of the 
need for this carry over. 

Your committee representing you on the Council considers itself 
more in terms of your ears to keep you informed than your mouth 
to speak on your behalf, unless you understand clearly beforehand 
the program of the Council which we are promoting in your name. 
The program as decided upon and published is not the only legis- 
lation we are called on to push. When unexpected legislation is 
brought to our attention, usually after 8 o'clock at night, or even 
10, we are asked to have a committee at the capitol by 9 or 9:30 
the next morning. These are suprise bills that have just been 
introduced. We must decide the question, "Is this social legisla- 
tion or is it political?" The dividing line at times is hard to de- 
termine. Under these circumstances I have found it advisable to 



The Woman's Auxiliary 49 

call local women of our Church who might be interested in the bill. 
If there is any question among these women as to the merits of 
the bill we drop the matter and do not appear at the capitol. 

To illustrate this difference in legislation : When the bill for 
a two day wait between the issuing of a marriage license and the 
wedding was about to be introduced, we were active immediately 
since it is already a provision of a Church canon. But when it 
came to women sitting on juries, there were as many answers 
as there were women called ! It wasn't the snow that kept us 
home that day! 

The Legislative Council begins work at its meeting this August 
on a program of legislation which the member organizations will 
promote during the '49 Legislature. We welcome your suggestions 
and advice on the social legislation which you consider needed in 
our State. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Katherine Duff Powell 

Rep. on N. C. State Legislative Council 



REPORT OF PERSONNEL CHAIRMAN 

To interest women and girls of our diocese in church work as a 
vocation is the purpose of this committee. To this end, it should 
inform them of jobs within the church open to women, and the 
training and qualifications required. Also, it should acquaint them 
with present vacancies at home and abroad. Particulrly in this 
connection, it should act as a liaison between the women in the 
various branches and - the Personnel Department of the National 
Woman's Auxiliary. 

If the church is going to make an impact on the world today, 
we must have trained workers placed at strategic spots, both at 
home and abroad. There is an urgent need for Directors of Re- 
ligious Education, Rural Workers, College Workers, Social Work- 
ers both home and abroad, Nurses, Teachers and other Missionary 
Specialists. The Post War work over seas needs trained workers 
as never before. 

We are asking each branch of the Auxiliary this year to be ever 
mindful of personnel vocational church work, and to pray diligent- 
ly that these fields of service now open may be supplied with ef- 
ficiency and consecration. 

Any women interested in professional church work are asked 
to get in touch with the chairman and receive through her the 
material from National Personnel Department. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Belle Davis Cheatham 
Personnel Chairman 



50 Sixty-Fifth Annual Report 

REPORT OF CHAIRMAN OF CHURCH PERIODICAL CLUB 

The Church Periodical Club is urging all Secretaries of the 
Church Periodical Club department of the Woman's Auxiliary to 
work toward the objectives for 1947-48 — gifts of books, subscrip- 
tions to periodicals, hymnals, prayer books, Bibles for overseas 
missions. The need is urgent and can only be supplied as we re- 
spond to the requests for these necessary supplies. 

On a recent visit to our National headquarters in New York 
City, two gh'ls from St. Luke's Hospital, Manila came in to say, 
"Thank you", to the Church Periodical Club for the books already 
sent there. The instructors there had been teaching from memory 
with no text books before they were supplied by these gifts. Many 
more are needed there and elsewhere overseas. Requests have 
come in from Palestine and Nicaragua for the first time. 

Instructions concerning this work may be obtained by writing to 
the Diocesan Chairman of the Church Periodical Club. Gifts of 
money for books and subscriptions to magazines should be sent 
to the Diocesan Treasurer of the Woman's Auxiliary clearly desig-
